Active Directory Authentication
Question asked by Divyash Patel - 4/23/2019 at 4:44 PM
I am looking to have existing SmarterMail users authenticate against Active Directory. I have enabled the feature, however, not sure what to do next.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello Divyash, 

When using AD with SmarterMail you can import the information but all the communications is going to be one way, no back and forth. 

You can import users from AD using the LDAP import. 

This will import the 
  • username
  • password
  • email address
If you are doing it on existing accounts or do not want to overwrite the current users. you can change teh Auth Type. 

This will only bring in the password for that username. 

Thank you
