Re: Mail server and address lookup by Sendmail using OpenLDAP.
This is in reference to the original message I sent which is below.
I spent the whole day today trying to integrate mail500 into sendmail, which I

I still need some help on how to set up OBJECTCLASSES and attributes in LDAP
to use with mail500 and sendmail for my system which is described below.
Thanks in advance,
