Initial match-all rule

From Messaging Server Technical Reference Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The special pattern $* is applied before any other rewriting, and matches all addresses. Its usual use is as a fundamental part of a "direct LDAP" setup, to achieve LDAP-based routing of domains. That is, its usual use is in conjunction with a template looking up domains in LDAP, so that domains are looked up in LDAP prior to any other rewriting. For example:

$*   $A$E$F$U%$H$V$H@official-host-name-of-l-channel
