Hi all

I may be overlooking something here, but from what I can gather, the
value in the ipa config of "Default e-mail domain for new users" should
automatically create the mail attribute for said user upon creation?

Do I need to do an additional step or something to activate the mail
attribute or is it missing?

Any pointers on what I'm missing to mail-enable a user in ldap?

It looks like it isn't creating the mail attribute by default. I opened
ticket https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/2810


Thanks for pointing out it wasn't me doing something silly ;-)

On thinking deeper onto the issue, perhaps it is beneficial not to have
it done by default? e.g if I have a mail server accepting mail for ldap
lookups for mail entries, this would mean EVERYONE has a mailbox whereas
that might not be beneficial in many situations..

In the AD side of things, a user has to be mail enabled, in order to
become valid for mail purposes.

In this situation, I can manually add the mail address with "ipa
user-mod --email=testu...@example.com" which does what I was needing.

Theres a few reasons for and against having default email access for new

I'm just bouncing some ideas out loud at the moment. Thoughts?

Our intention was to automatically populate the field if the default e-mail domain was set. If it wasn't then we'd do nothing.
