LDAP routing - how to specifiy delivery port?

Hi,

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?

Cheers,
Simon

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

mailHost: host.domain.com

smtproute
host.domain.com: 1.2.3.4:26


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 1.2.3.4 on port 26.

This suggestion works great and has dug me out of a hole. Thanks for taking the trouble.
