Routing and Alias Management with OpenLDAP and Sendmail

LDAP and Sendmail offer sys admins considerable advantages for dynamic mail routing and centralized alias management. A common requirement, as an organization grows, is to support geographically dispersed mailservers. While this can be achieved by using subdomaining (i.e., bill@nyc.acme.com, jane@dublin.acme.com), it is generally preferable to route the mail dynamically from a single address (jane@acme.com). I'll explore how this can be accomplished using Sendmail in conjunction with OpenLDAP.
