Re: mail routing using OpenLDAP

Your questions are not specific to OpenLDAP Software.  I
suggest you direct your questions to a forum specific
to the messaging software you are using or, if you
want to know how these schema elements were intended to
be used, I suggest directly your questions to a general
LDAP list, such as <ldap@umich.edu>.

Or do I want to relay the entire domain @page.example.com to cellcompany.com?  In that instance, how would I translate the mail address from jdoe to cellnumber?
