What is the actual query to the LDAP server? You might want to look at it
to see that it's what you expect. If you compiled with -DSUNET_ID, the
query it's making is "(maildrop=ttestmiloufnofr)". If not, it's
Either way, you've got it backwards. -k (key) is the attribute to which
you pass the email address (%s). -v (value) is the attribute to which it
should be rewritten. Try this:
Kluser ldapx -b "o=Top" -h "localhost" -k "mail=%s" -v maildrop
Be sure that mail is indexed (pretty standard) or it'll take forever.
I'd strongly recommend looking at how sendmail 8.10 does the LDAP stuff.
*Much* nicer. Very cool stuff, in fact. I've got it running for
8.10beta10, but 8.10beta12 just came out last week, and I'm gonna give
that a go.
I was going to implement automatic mail routing using 8.9.3, but 8.10 has
exactly what I was looking for (the LDAP maps perform better, too). It
has really made a difference.
