AD/LDAP Lookup With AsIs

If you wish to use LDAP to validate the existence of an email address, but you wish to use AsIs to stream the address, folow these steps:

  1. Create the LDAP user-lookup using the usual configuration.
  2. Under the "Stream Settings" heading, change the entry: "List of attributes to use for stream name:" to something like:
    canitNonExistentAttribute
  3. Then change the entry: "Action if stream attribute missing:" to:
    Use email address (AsIs)

This causes an LDAP lookup to be made (which tests for the existence/nonexistence of the address) but keeps the stream the same (AsIs)
