All Email Security Gateway models 300 and above, all firmware versions.

The common syntax for Apple LDAP is:
  • Port: 389 (636 for secure LDAP)
  • Bind DN: uid=<The admin UID>,cn=users,dc=<The LDAP hostname>,dc=<domain name without extension>,dc=com (this can vary)
  • Filter:
( (mail=${recipient_email})
  • LDAP Search Base: dc=<hostname>,dc=<domain name without extension>,dc=com (this can vary)
  • LDAP UID: uid (or sometimes cn)
  • LDAP Primary Email Attribute: mail (or sometimes emailAddress)
Additional Notes:
To find the proper values for the Bind DN and LDAP Search Base, you can use Apple's knowledgebase article here to retrieve the LDIF file:
