In each new directory, ClickMail creates two entries required by LDAP. They are mentioned here because you will see them in the Entry window. These rarely need to be changed.
If you wish, skip to Importing Entries on the next page and read this part later.
Domain Specific Entry (DSE): This is the "top" entry. Its distinguished name is "" (an empty string). Its three required attributes are namingContexts (usually one, which you just entered), subschemaSubentry (a list of distinguished names of subschema entries), and entry type (objectClass) (always "*"). The DSE cannot be deleted.
Subschema Entry: This describes an entry type (objectClass) used in your directory to describe a schema. Its common name is the name of the entry type (our default: emailPerson). attributeTypes lists the attributes that may appear in each entry. objectClasses lists the objectClass and its parents (don't confuse this with the entry type attribute, whose LDAP name is objectClass, singular). To be LDAPv3 compliant, the directory must contain at least one subschema entry. ClickMail automatically creates an entry called "emailPerson." It is designed to cover the attributes expected by the major email clients. You may edit or replace this entry to support different LDAP schemas.
