UNIX Script to query Active Directory: give cn (NT login name) and receive mail (Email address)

I need to write UNIX script (with ldapsearch) to query Active Directory. Input is NT login name and output is Email address.

Attached a screenshot of Sysinternals "AD Explorer". I need to do the same in CLI.


I am absolute LDAP/ldapsearch noob.
