Import LDAP Users

This feature is only available to domain administrators running SmarterMail Enterprise.

The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an Internet protocol that email servers and other programs use to connect to, and look up information from, a server. In SmarterMail, LDAP is most commonly used for integrating SmarterMail with Microsoft's Active Directory.

In order for domain administrators to add new SmarterMail users via the LDAP protocol they simply need to type the LDAP binding string in the LDAP Binding String field.

Note: LDAP integration will only function if SmarterMail is on the same domain as the LDAP server you are trying to connect to.
