    Default Anonymous Bind for LDAP in 6.0.5

    Is it possible to ldap bind to 6.0.5 anonymously? Presently, I connect to zimbra through ldap using the zimbra account to see zimbraMailForwardingAddress and zimbraDomainName of the respective objects.

    Can I still use an anonymous user account instead to connect to the LDAP server and still be able to gather this information?

    Anonymous Searches
    For new installations of ZCS 6.0, anonymous searches of the directory are
    disabled. (Bug 15378) When you upgrade to 6.0, anonymous searches of the
    directory are enabled, matching previous release behavior.
    To disable anonymous search after upgrading, on each LDAP server, as
    zimbra run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapanon -d
    To enable anonymous access at any point after it is disabled, on each LDAP
    server run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapanon -e
    Important: Enabling anonymous binds is not recommended as it may expose
    data not intended for anonymous access

    Would anonymous access allow me to see zimbraMailForwardingAddress attributes?

    I have tried using my personal admin account, but that attribute was hidden from me. Would it be hidden for anonymous access also?

    I have finished the web application that queries ldap, but our security department doesn't like me using uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra can anyone help?
