LDAP routing - how to specifiy delivery port?

Vanilla LDAP routing works fine for me, but what I want to do now is specify a port other than SMTP (25) for onward delivery. This can be done with an SMTP route added through the CLI or GUI, e.g. mx.wibble.com:26. When I set the MAILHOST to mx.wibble.com:26 in LDAP, delivery fails because the appliance is treating the whole string as a hostname.

Is it possible to force a different delivery port through LDAP?

You can setup an smtproute for the hostname in the mailHost attribute.

mailHost: host.domain.com


Now a message that matches the ldap routing will be routed to 'host.domain.com'. Before this message gets delivered, Ironport will lookup the smtproutes and deliver the message to host on port 26.
