Why does LDAP routing fail when the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the mail host matches the domain being routed?
This is a case in LDAP routing where having the domain to be routed (mira.example.com) same as the destination mailhost (mira.example.com), does not work well. For example:
To correct the problem, try either of the following solutions:
- Have the mailhost attribute in LDAP point to the IP address of the appliance, instead of the fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example:
- Use the setting Smtp Set Ldaprouting All, instead of Smtp Set Ldaprouting On. In this case, the destination domain should not be listed as a maildom. If there is a maildom entry for mira.example.com, it needs to be removed. Use the following command:
Maildom Delete mira.example.com
