We are using postfix etc. in front of our CGP and it works very great as a spam- and virusblocker.
Also it can handle aliases and accounts in real time.

Let postfix protect your cisco and not vice versa :-)

I'm interested in this case, too.

We will implement a Cisco Spam and Virus Blocker and should be able to get the account aliases for this matter.

What's happening when I turn ON Directory-Based Domains?
Has LDAP direct Provisioning something to do with it? - It is currently disabled on our server.

Does anyone have a Cisco Spam and Virus Blocker in use with CGP?

I've seen others discouraging the use of directory-based domains given that the account information isn't cached, so it tends to cost more in terms of resources to frequently fetch account details from the directory.  I'm not sure at what scale, though, that this becomes a real issue as I'm dealing with less than 500 users.

If you turn your domain into a Directory-based domain, aliases and everything else will be in LDAP, queryable.

I'm not sure of the other side-effects of a directory-based domains, however, neither I investigated the way to convert a normal domain into a directory-based one.

May worth some testing...

Hi all,

I saw a couple of messages from a few years back discussing the lack of support in CGP's directory for aliases (account or domains).  I was wondering if this had changed at all, or if anyone had any helpful workarounds for valid address verification via LDAP.  We have numerous group and generic email address that don't belong to an individual in our company directory, so setting these up in our existing LDAP directory would be incredibly time consuming.
