Enable LDAP or Active Directory for a Domain

This article applies to recent versions of SmarterMail. View articles for SmarterMail 15.x and earlier.

Domain administrators can add new SmarterMail users from the active directory using the LDAP protocol. This feature can be used to save time and is very useful when importing multiple users from an existing LDAP database such as active directory.

NOTE: LDAP integration will only function if SmarterMail is on the same domain as the LDAP server you are trying to connect to.

Follow these steps to configure LDAP for a domain:

  1. Log in as the system administrator.
  2. Click on the Manage icon.
  3. Click the domain you want to enable LDAP for, or integrate with Active Directory.
  4. On the Features card, toggle the Active Directory Integration option to ON.
  5. Click Save.

For instructions on how to import new SmarterMail users via the LDAP protocol, please refer to the KB article Import New Users Using LDAP. For more information, refer to the SmarterMail Online Help.
