File menu

Configure: Configure settings for the datafile, including New and Open commands. See Configure Directory Server Window, below.

Import, Export: Submenus allow selection of two text formats, LDIF (which can be edited in a text editor) and tab-delimited, which can be manipulated in a spreadsheet or database. A third format, vCard, may be imported. The vCard format is an "electronic business card." See Export/Import.

Logging: Controls the display and storage of a log of events that occur in the operation of the directory, particularly client activity. See Logging Window , below..

Backup: Makes a backup copy of the directory, which consists of a datafile and "<datafile name> keys" file. Prepends "copy of " before the names of the two files. Because of this, your datafile name must be 18 characters or less. See Making a new directory.

Reindex: Deletes all attribute indexes and recreates them. Normally done only when upgrading from an old datafile format (ClickMail reindexes automatically when needed). Reindexing takes several minutes or longer, depending on the size of your directory.

Compact Datafile: Removes unused space that accumulates in the datafile. This can be done at any time, but ClickMail prompts you at quit time if it thinks a compact is needed.

Resync from AppleShare: Synchronizes all mirror entries with the current items in AppleShare Users & Groups. For AppleShare mirror mode only.

Attributes Reference: Opens a simple reference window listing common attributes and their LDAP names.

Edit menu

Serial Number: Enter the serial number to activate your purchased copy of ClickMail.

Preferences: Choose preferences that stay with ClickMail, as opposed to settings associated with datafiles. See ClickMail Preferences Window, below.

Database menu

Permissions: Sets overall access to the server by clients. See Database permissions .

Attributes: Sets permissions for attributes in general and individually. See Attribute permissions.

Entries: Opens Entry window for viewing and editing entries in the current directory. See Working with entries .

Windows menu

Lists menu

This menu is used only with the Import and Export Tab-delimited windows. It helps you save and use lists of attributes/fields for importing and exporting external files.

Open Field List: Opens a text file containing a list of fields and loads them into the attribute/field list in the Import/Export window. This replaces the current list.

Save Field List: Saves the list of attributes/fields currently showing in the Import or Export window as a plain text file.

Standard Fields: Replaces the current attribute/field list with a list of attributes commonly used for person records. This option is good for exporting person entries that you plan to reimport later. The FileMaker Import/Data Utility template is preprogrammed with this list. This can be undone.

Current Database Attributes: Replaces the current attribute/field list with a list of all attributes that currently exist anywhere in the directory. This option is good for exporting person and non-person entries that you plan to reimport later. ClickMail remembers the last list you used in the Import or Export window. This can be undone.

Entries menu

To use this menu, open the Entries window (from the Database menu).

Find DSE: Finds the "DSA-Specific Entry," an entry required by LDAP that is at the top of the directory tree.

Find Subschemas: Finds all subschema entries, which state what attributes belong in an entry type. ClickMail creates one subschema entry automatically.

Find Groups: Finds all group entries, which contain lists of dn's referring to other entries.

Add Group: Creates a group entry. Hold down option to create an administrators group for ClickMail remote web administration.

Paste DN: Pastes one or more distinguished names into an attribute. Select the attribute first. In the administrators group entry, used to add values to the "member" attribute.
