# Subject: LDAP mail routing

# I have added an ldif file containing following lines:
# dn: uid=rahul,dc=nemesis,dc=atg
# objectclass: person
# objectclass: organizationalPerson
# objectclass: inetOrgPerson
# objectclass: inetLocalMailRecipient
# cn: rahul 
# sn: raje
# uid: rahul
# mailLocalAddress: rahul@nemesis.atg
# mailRoutingAddress: dinesh@nemesis.atg
# mailHost: nemesis.atg
# mail: rahul@nemesis.atg

OpenLDAP is the trouble:

If you search your sendmail.cf, you'll see that you search for a
mailRoutingAddress AND and an objectclass. OpenLDAP doesn't seem to
understand that more than one objectclass can be searched on. You can try
putting the "objectclass: inetLocalMailRecipient" on top of the list.

I had the same trouble, so I started to perform a normal ldapsearch,
querying like sendmail would do, and it didn't give me any results either.

I fixed this by changing the query from sendmail (read the FAQ) by not
searching it for objectclasses.

Kind regards,
