Direct LDAP usergroup lookup MTA options: ldap_mail_reverses (comma-separated list of attribute names)

The ldap_mail_reverses MTA option specifies what attributes are used to build the filter referenced by the $Q LDAP substitution sequence. (In iMS 5.2p2, the reverse_url MTA option, used for address reversal, typically made use of the $Q substitution sequence. However nowadays, reverse_url typically instead makes use of the $R substitution sequence with attribute list therefore determined via the ldap_mail_aliases MTA option. So nowadays $Q, and hence ldap_mail_reverses, are of lesser interest.)

The default, if this option is not explicitly set, depends upon the schema tag. For a schema tag value of ims50 or nms41, the default for the ldap_mail_reverses option is "mail,mailAlternateAddress". For a schema tag value of sims40, the default for this option is "mail,rfc822MailAlias".

See also the ldap_mail_aliases and ldap_equivalence_addresses MTA options.

Normally, ldap_mail_reverses should be set to include, in addition to the canonical mail attribute, all attributes set for ldap_mail_aliases, but should not include the attribute(s) set for ldap_equivalence_addresses. In particular, if ldap_mail_aliases is changed to a non-default value, one would normally want to change ldap_mail_reverses in a corresponding fashion.
