Alias options: alias_creation_date

(New in 8.0.) The alias_creation_date alias option may be used to set a creation date for the alias (intended to be used for RRVS purposes). The creation date value must be in RFC 3339 (Date and Time on the Internet: Timestamps) format (a profile of ISO 8601 format), along the lines of:

YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.ssZ

or

YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.ss'plus-or-minus'HH:MM

where the hundredths of seconds portion is optional, and T and (if used) Z are not case sensitive. For instance:

2014-02-28T12:13:14.30-07:00

This alias option is analogous to use of the LDAP attribute named by the ldap_creation_date MTA option on a user or group or mailing list defined via an LDAP entry, or to use of the LDAP attribute named by the ldap_domain_attr_creation_date MTA option on a domain entry.

The legacy configuration analogue is the [CREATION_DATE] alias file named parameter.
