PostFix + LDAP
Have PostFix check the LDAP server when it receives an email. If the recipient exists in the LDAP server, forward email on to main mailserver. If not, discard the email. I don't want a script file that runs every hour to load a new list of users into the list.
email addresses are: firstname.lastname@example.org
I got PostFix checking the LDAP server when it receives email with the changes:
ldapsource1_server_host = ldap.domain.com
ldapsource1_search_base = ou=users,o=domain
ldapsource1_query_filter = mail=%s
When I check the log and packets, I see that PostFix queries the LDAP server. The LDAP server returns with the maildrop attribute information. Then PostFix gives me an error saying, "unknown user: 'first.last'"
I don't know where to troubleshoot from here. I'm guessing maybe the user is missing from the alias database, maybe? Is there anyway I can take a peek into the alias database to see whats in there? I run the 'newaliases' command and 'postalias /etc/alias' command and it doesn't seem to update the 'alias' file in '/etc' Any ideas, hints, clues, solutions, suggestions, or anything that might help me out?
Thanks in advance.
