Environment

Novell NetMail 3.52
Novell eDirectory 8.8

Situation

NetMail will not load after upgrading to eDirectory 8.8. eDirectory 8.8 does not allow log in password that is hard-coded on Internet Services account.

Resolution

DDB must be loaded first using the "-u" and "-p" switches.
LOAD DDB -u:\TREE_NAME\O\OU\CN -p:user_password
The user must have full rights to all objects serviced by the NetMail Messaging server.

For Linux installation, create file /etc/ddb.cfg. The contents of the ddb.cfg should be:
userName=\tree\o\ou\userid
password=password
