< All Topics

Autodiscover is a system to determine which settings to make use of for the POP/IMAP/SMTP settings, that permits the mail shopper customers to configure their e mail deal with mechanically. We will arrange this in DirectAdmin with fundamental requirement: subdomain and an SRV document.

You may add the SRV document on which area you want to use these settings for. If in case you have any world SSL certificates in exim/dovecot on your hostname, it will likely be higher to ensure the purchasers use the right worth. Therefore they didn’t get SSL certificates errors.

Let’s suspect that you’re connecting your purchasers to server.hostname.com with clientdomain.com for each IMAP and SMTP. Then to begin with have to create a subdomain referred to as ” autodiscover.hostname.com ” to retailer the  XML.

1) Must setup SRV document on the talked about shopper domains “clientdomain.com” DNS zone:

_autodiscover._tcp.clientdomain.com. 3600 IN SRV 10 10 443 autodiscover.hostname.com.

2) Subsequent, have to create the subdomain autodiscover.hostname.com in Directadmin, then can we add the follwing code right into a file referred to as autodiscover.php:

<?php

//get uncooked POST knowledge so we will extract the e-mail deal with

$knowledge = file_get_contents(“php://enter”);

preg_match(“/<EMailAddress>(.*?)</EMailAddress>/”, $knowledge, $matches);

//set Content material-Kind

header(“Content material-Kind: utility/xml”);

echo ‘<?xml model=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>’; ?>
