What after rejection of LDAP SMTP AUTH Command authentication?

Hello Everyone, 

I configured an SMTP LDAP Authentication profile on my ESA and assigned it to a private listener. The SMTP authentication is working properly if I disable the verification or only use monitor action in the profile. If I use reject action in the verification phase it blocks the authentication. My question is that what do I have to configure on the LDAP user property (I use MS AD.) if I'd like to use the verification (Check with LDAP if user is allowed to use SMTP AUTH Command) with Reject action.


Thanks in Advance

Hello Saleena,


What is the error on the mail_logs when an auth fails?

the SMTP auth query on LDAP make sure it's set, and also set in the auth profile + listener to use.


One thing to note is LDAP usage with auth is the LDAP bind - it looks for the attribute you are configuring and binds against the password for the user in AD.


Let us know the error, perhaps some ESA gurus on the forums can assist as well.
