Unless you configure the Quarantine for administrator-only access, the Quarantine requires an LDAP server. The LDAP server authenticates users as they log on to access their quarantined messages and lets the Quarantine expand user mail aliases.

The following LDAP servers are compatible with the Quarantine:

  • Netscape/iPlanet Directory Server 4.2 and 5.1

  • Sun ONE Directory Server 5.2

You should be familiar with the particular LDAP schema that your company uses.
