Authentication: Additional LDAP Attributes Support
Add a configuration option for adding a query filter attribute for additional email-addresses for user settings.
like searching for email destination (|(mail=%s)(otherMailbox=%s))
Its easier to maintain email-aliases like firstname.lastname@example.org in central directory.
Also, other attributes like First and Last name should be selectable if possible
When using the auto-create users from ldap, nowadays the email address is also imported. Very nice!
But it would be great if it could also import the users "real name" from a selectable ldap field.
Usually the info is contained in ldap, and users like so much to see their full name on the screen, instead of just their login name...
I would like to check the attribute shadowExpire of a LDAP user !
@bob: thats not exactly what i need. another example. having an email adress like email@example.com and an additional address firstname.lastname@example.org which are assigned to the same user. Currently i can assign additionally email-addresses in the user preferences (Users - users - username-edit - additional email addresses). but we have this in the Active Directory already. Historically, a lot of users have up to 3 aliases. where all of these can be totally different. like email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
If we don't maintain these aliases on astaro they won't get the mails assigned to their quarantine report.

Tobias, presently, it is possible to enter 'Mailing List Address Patterns' on the 'Exceptions' tab of 'Quarantine Report'. The manual comments: "If the e-mail address of a mailing list is configured in the Mailing List Address Patterns box (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org) and a spam message sent to this mailing list was detected and redirected to the e-mail quarantine, the Quarantine Report of all recipients included in this mailing list will contain a link to this spam message. Thus, each recipient can release this spam message individually by entering his e-mail address in a user prompt that appears once the recipient has clicked the Release link in the Quarantine Report."
Doesn't that accomplish your goal?
Cheers - Bob
PS This is another example of a situation that is addressed quickly on the User BB.
