THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:
- Mail Express, version 3.x
An ERROR level log message appears in the MailExpressServer.log similar to the following:
ERROR Failed to locate attribute "mail" for user "IdontHaveAnEmail"
When authenticating an Active Directory-backed user with the Mail Express Server, the server will attempt to locate the following attributes on the user account:
- mail - The email address for the user is used to populate the email address for the user within Mail Express. This field should exist, because the LDAP-backed users inherently originate from the Outlook Add-In, and thus should have Exchange accounts. This field is required.
- displayName - The display name for the user is not required, but if present, it will be used to populate the user's display name within Mail Express.
If a user account lacking the "mail" attribute attempts to authenticate with the Mail Express Server, an ERROR level log message appears in the MailExpressServer.log similar to the error above.
