UserGate Mail Server

  Administrator's Manual

UserGate Mail Server supports two types of mail domains, – local domains and remote domains. A domain is called local if accounts on this domain are serviced by Mail Server itself. For a remote domain, Mail Server acts as a mail gateway that receives incoming mail and forwards it to a remote mail server.
A local mail domain can be a simple domain, or it can be integrated with Active Directory. In the case of simple domain, all account data is stored on the mail server. In cases of integrated domains, accounts are stored in Active Directory service.
Combined functioning, when some users are authorized using LDAP catalog and some using a local database, is also supported.
