Corvid mailRoutingAddress Attribute
Also Known AsImplemented internally in LDAP as the mailRoutingAddress attribute, this feature is also known as:
- Email Routing Address
- Mail Forwarding Address, Email Forwarding Address
DescriptionThe mailRoutingAddress attribute specifies where the local system should deliver email addressed to your account. This address can be local or remote.
ExampleHarry Bovik, who plans a speaking tour on his impending sabbatical, now retrieves his email from "imap.srv.cs.cmu.edu," the server currently specified in his mailRoutingAddress. While travelling, he prefers to have email forwarded to his account on gmail.com. To make this change, Harry need only reset his mailRoutingAddress value to email@example.com.
Note: The mailRoutingAddress value must not be null or blank, nor an email local address such as firstname.lastname@example.org. When Dr. Bovik returns and wants again to receive email in his local SCS account, he must remember to reset mailRoutingAddress to his account on the Corvid server itself, eg. email@example.com.
