DISCUSSION

Mail Express uses the "mail" LDAP attribute from Active Directory to populate the email address property for internal users. If you want to use an alternative LDAP attribute to define a user’s email address, you must do so by modifying a value in the staticConfig.xml file, as described below.

To use an alternative LDAP attribute to define an internal user's email address

  1. Stop the Mail Express service.
  2. In the Mail Express installation directory, open the META-INF directory (e.g., \Program Files\GlobalSCAPE\Mail Express\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes\META-INF or \Program Files (x86)\GlobalSCAPE\Mail Express\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes\META-INF).
  3. Locate the file staticConfig.xml and open it in a text editor.
  4. Locate MailExpressLDAP.attributeNameMail.
  5. Change value="mail" to value="description".
  6. Save and close the file.
  7. Start the Mail Express service.
