You can now search in this address book but a more convenient construction is the following: start a new mail message and fill in part of the name in the "To:" field and press "Control-K". A list of names will popup that match the typed text, choose the name you were looking for.

Unfortunately Outlook stops searching the address books as soon as it has a match in one address book. This implies that if LDAP is the second address book and you have a contact that matches in your personal address book you will not get results from the LDAP address book. In that case only explicitly searching in the LDAP address book will work, you can add the found results to you personal address book so the next time it will find it there.
