How to use a non administrative account to perform Active Directory to Axigen (L2A) LDAP synchronization
This article describes how to use a non administrative account to perform Active Directory to Axigen (L2A) LDAP synchronization.
How to perform LDAP authentication with Active Directory or with OpenLDAP using the "mail" LDAP attribute
Axigen can be configured to perform authentication against an Active Directory or an OpenLDAP server instead of using the internal password database. When using LDAP authentication, by default the username is matched with the 'uid' LDAP attribute for OpenLDAP and with the 'sAMAccountName' attribute for Active Directory.
In some situations the user's email address may be stored in the 'mail' LDAP attribute and the account part of the user's email address may be different than the value of the default 'uid' or 'sAMAccountName' attributes.
This article describes how to authenticate the Axigen accounts by matching the user's email address against the 'mail' LDAP attribute.
Important: the LDAP connector described in this article should only be used for authentication. It should not be used to perform synchronization between Axigen and the LDAP server.

How to relay messages from the local machine using the sendmail binary if the sender's domain does not exist in Axigen
In the default configuration, Axigen will deny the relay for messages sent via the sendmail binary when the sender's domain does not exist in Axigen.
This article describes how to allow relay for such messages.
This article describes how to configure Axigen to sign the messages using DKIM when Axigen is used as a mail gateway in front of another mail server.
When messages are DKIM signed using the "simple" Header Canonicalization Algorithm, the message headers must not be modified when the message transits intermediate mail servers in order for the DKIM verification to pass.
If the DKIM signed messages are relayed via a mail gateway it is preferable to use the "relaxed" Header Canonicalization Algorithm which is more tolerant to common in-transit modifications like white space replacement and line wrapping.
