addr.dll - What is addr.dll?

addr.dll File Description:

The Address Book module created by Sun Microsystems makes use of the addr.dll module to enable its various functions including storing, editing and tracking information on customers, employees, vendors and resellers. The Address Book serves as a primary source for customer data.

There are several address book types supported by the Windows OS. There is the LDAP or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, which is an application protocol used for querying and modifying directory services running over Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or Internet Protocol (IP). The directory can be described as a set of objects organized in a logical and hierarchical manner similar to a telephone directory. The LDAP calls the addr.dll module when the clients request any of the following directory service operations:

* start Transport Layer Security to protect the directory connection;

* search and retrieve directory;

* compare name entries in the directory;

* delete directory entries;

* add directory entries;

* And modify directory entries.

Another Address Book type supported by Windows is the WAB or Windows Address Book, which allows users to have a single list of contacts that may be shared with multiple programs. The addr.dll module is used by the WAB Application program Interface in querying LDAP servers or reading/writing data in a .wab file format.

Some other Address Book types supported by windows that query the addr.dll module are:

* local address book;

* and Outlook Personal Address Book (PAB).

The above Address Book types are also available for Mozilla platforms. The Sun Microsoft Systems Company provides a way for Mozilla mail clients to have address book access using XPCOM. XPCOM or Cross platform component model is used as an adaptor to Outlook and Outlook Express address books. It also supports the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) address book using its XPCOM LDAP components.
