NAME

       courierldapaliasd - LDAP-based mail aliasing

SYNOPSIS

       courierldapaliasd {start}

       courierldapaliasd {stop}

       courierldapaliasd {restart}

       courierldapaliasd {query} {source} {address}

DESCRIPTION

       courierldapaliasd supports mail address aliasing, as implemented by makealiases(8)[1] but
       using an LDAP directory instead of a GDBM or a DB database. The term "aliasing" refers to
       substituting one or more addresses for another address. A one-to-one substitution results
       in the Courier mail server accepting mail for one address, and delivering the mail to
       another address. A one-to-many substitution results in the Courier mail server accepting
       mail for one address, and delivering a separate copy of the message to every address
       defined by the alias.

       makealiases(8)[1] uses a GDBM or a DB database to perform the aliasing function.
       courierldapaliasd uses an LDAP directory instead.

       "courierldapaliasd start" runs the courierldapaliasd process in the background, and should
       be executed at system startup. "courierldapaliasd stop" stops the background process.
       "courierldapaliasd restart" restarts the process, and rereads the ldapaliasrc
       configuration file to pick up any changes.  courierldapaliasd restart must be executed in
       order for any changes to ldapaliasrc to take place.

       courierldapaliasd runs in the background and opens a persistent connection to the LDAP
       directory, and checks every recipient address using the persistent connection.
       courierldapaliasd automatically starts an adjustable number of multiple processes. With
       persistent connections being used, this allows alias checking to be as efficient and quick
       as possible.

       "courierldapaliasd query source address" is a diagnostic tool. It requires that
       courierldapaliasd must already be running in the background; it sends a query for address
       to the background process, and prints the result. Like makealiases(8)[1], it is possible
       to create aliases that are accessible only to certain sources of mail, like "esmtp" or
       "local". The "source" argument specifies the source of the address, such as "local",
       "esmtp", or "uucp".

CONFIGURATION

       courierldapaliasd requires OpenLDAP client libraries, and is installed automatically if
       OpenLDAP client libraries are available at installation time. The default ldapaliasrc
       configuration file contains additional instructions for configuring LDAP-based aliasing.
