The directory data service lets you use the information that is stored in your Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directories for features in the Symantec Messaging Gateway.
Symantec Messaging Gateway provides four functions that you can enable for your data source: authentication, address resolution, routing, and recipient validation. You enable one or a combination of these functions for each data source.
To use your directory data for these features, you configure data sources for desired functionality, and also configure additional features in Symantec Messaging Gateway.
You can use these functions to support feature configuration within Symantec Messaging Gateway.
