1.7 LISTSERV LDAP and Dynamic Query List (DQL) support
These features are not available in LISTSERV Lite. They require LISTSERV Classic or Classic HPO.
LISTSERV is now able to interface to LDAP servers to authenticate user logins and to insert LDAP attributes in mail-merge distributions. For full information on LISTSERV/ LDAP integration, please see Section 7 LISTSERV and LDAP.
In addition, LISTSERV is now able to execute on-demand Dynamic Queries against either LDAP or traditional DBMS servers, and use the results for access control or mail delivery. For instance, an LDAP query against an Active Directory server could be used to grant list owner privileges to all members of a particular Windows Security Group. A DBMS query could be used to combine employee rosters for two departments and send a single copy of an announcement to each unique employee e-mail address. For more information on Dynamic Query Lists (DQL), please see Section 8 Dynamic Queries.
