    Default Providing Distribution Lists from external LDAP server

    I am trying to supply distribution lists to the Zimbra GAL from an external LDAP server. I have found that users distribution lists are stored in an attribute called 'dlist' with the entry type set to 'group'. I can supply this information via LDAP by adding

    zimbraGalLdapAttrMap: zimbraContactType=type
    zimbraGalLdapAttrMap: zimbraContactDlist=dlist

    via zmprov to the zimbra configuration and then configuring my ldap server to provide the two new attributes by adding a new schema. Unfortunately whole thing falls flat at the level of the Zimbra web-ui as it starts throwing javascript exceptions as it should display such entries from the LDAP server.

    I have had a look at the javascript code causing the problem and it seems that these new distribution list entries are not properly associate with an address book which causes the code to fail.

    any hints on how to fix this?

    for ldap we did not find a solution, but we found a way to feed a mailinglist directly into a shared zimbra addressbook which satisfies our requirements as well ...

    Sounds like an ok solution, are you working with distribution lists and using the SOAP-interface to edit address data?
