NetMail can be setup to only search for users with the same Internet Domain Name.

  1. Group the users that share the same Internet Domain Name into the same NDS context.

  2. Edit the properties of the Orginizational Unit that contains the user objects.

  3. Select the NetMail Options tab and enter the Internet Domain Name into the Domain field.

  4. In NWAdmin make sure NetMail Address Book Agent has the desired settings.

  5. In Consoleone edit the NetMail Address Book Agent.
    Note: It will show as a question mark as it is not snapped in.

  6. Select the Other tab.

  7. The Novonyx:LDAP Options setting will have a number representing your settings in step 1. Add 16 to the number and modify the attribute with the new sum.
    For example, if the option is 1 then add 16 to get a sum 17. This adds the option: LDAP_USE_USERS_BASEDN.

  8. Create a NetMail Parent Object for each context under Internet Services | Parent Objects.

  9. Edit the Parent Object and select the Options tab.

  10. Select the ModWebMail object tab.

    • IP_addresss is the IP address of the NetMail server.
    • Port is 389 unless the Address Book object was changed.
