If I press "Get Info" on a buddy I get:

Status: Available
Client: Pidgin 2.5.2 (libpurple 2.5.2)


Full Name: User Userides
Email: user at example.com
Title: Junior Engineer
Description: Junior Engineer
Telephone: +876868768
Given Name: User
Family Name: Userides
Organisation Name: Example Ltd
Organisation Unit: Net

Is this vcard information?

I have been doing some tcpdumping on the communication between the
jabber and the active directory server and the query looks like:

Filter: (&(&(sAMAccountName=*)(memberOf=*))(fn=*Ejabberd*))

I have search for Ejabberd under "Name"

What is that fn over there? It does not look like a valid attribute and
I cannot find such an attribute on any of the users of AD
