Summary0002158: Does local_recipient_maps work with AD connector
DescriptionUsers using Postfix/Cyrus + AD connector first saw 'invalid recipient' with default settings. Prevents mail from being delivered.

Setting local_recipient_maps to nothing allowed (confirm req'd) delivery to occur.

Does Postfix need to talk back to AD? [^]

By default Postfix/IMAP + AD does not quite work in ClearOS. Here are the necessary changes to get it going. In /etc/postfix/, change the following parameters:

  virtual_alias_maps = $alias_maps, $virtual_maps
  local_recipient_maps = proxy:unix:passwd.byname $alias_maps $virtual_alias_maps

The file should be "chattr-ed" since the ClearOS IMAP server won't like seeing virtual_alias_maps in that state. Normally, that line looks like:

  virtual_alias_maps = $alias_maps, $virtual_maps, ldap:/etc/postfix/, ldap:/etc/postfix/

Translation: Postfix is doing direct LDAP lookups for mail aliases and group distribution lists (e.g. sales -> dave, cindy, mike).

Normally, local_recipient_maps looks like:

  local_recipient_maps = $alias_maps $virtual_alias_maps

By adding "proxy:unix:passwd.byname" (the default), Postfix will do a standard Posix/getent lookup, and that's fine in AD mode.
