Ldap_user_mail_status MTA option
Direct LDAP attribute name MTA options:
ldap_user_mail_status (LDAP attribute name)
ldap_user_mail_status MTA option specifies the name of a user LDAP attribute, by default
mailUserStatus, used to store the user's status for mail purposes. (Contrast with the
ldap_user_status MTA option which names an LDAP attribute, by default
inetUserStatus, used to store the user's general status for services in addition to mail. And consider also the
ldap_domain_attr_mail_status MTA option which names an analogous domain LDAP attribute.)
For the LDAP attribute named by
ldap_user_mail_status, valid values are
removed (new in MS 6.0),
defer (new in MS 6.3),
defer-submit (new in MS 6.3),
deliver (new in 7.3-11.01), and
deliver-disabled (new in 18.104.22.168/22.214.171.124).
A status of
removed is equivalent to
deleted from the MTA's point of view; it exists as a distinct status for the benefit of the commcli user purging operation.
defer-submit tell the MTA to accept all messages to the user but defer them to the reprocess channel for later delivery (re)attempts; or in the case of
defer-submit accept and defer to the reprocess channel those messages coming in a
submit channel while giving
inactive behavior, hence normally temporary errors, for attempted submissions on any other channels.
A status of
deliver is treated by the MTA as active
active for purposes of message delivery but which other components will treat as
inactive (giving the effect that messages can be delivered, but the user can not login); any other value is treated as
(Note that the
acceptalladdresses channel option, if used, modifies the timing and form of recipient rejections due to errors such as "
overquota" or "
disabled" status. New in MS 126.96.36.199.0, the
accepttemporaryfailures channel option, if used, modifies the timing and form of recipient deferrals due to temporary errors such as "
inactive" status. Note also that the
use_permanent_error MTA options, and
usepermanenterror channel options, can alter the interpretation of whether such status errors are considered temporary vs. permanent errors.)
