Address Space

Use the Address Space property page to configure message routing for the connector. You can configure the address space to specify which messages bound for cc:Mail this connector will route.

Getting to the Address Space property page

  1. In the Administrator window, choose Connections.
  2. Double-click Connector for cc:Mail.
  3. Select the Address Space tab.

Configuring the Address Space

Use the Address Space property page to enter information about the addresses you want the connector to process. If you enter the CCMAIL address space entry * at SERVER1, it matches all recipient addresses for the post office SERVER1. You can type a wildcard (* or %) when necessary to specify a group of addresses. For example, entering SITE?? specifies all entries that contain SITE followed by two alphanumeric characters, such as SITE01 and SITE11.

  1. Select the Address Space tab.
  2. Choose New.
  3. Choose Other.
  4. In the Type box, type CCMAIL.
  5. In the Address box, type the address.

Option Description
Type The address type used to identify the cc:Mail post office. You must type the address type CCMAIL.
Address Type enough address information for routing. To route all traffic for a message type through the connector, leave the Address box blank.
Cost The routing cost (0 to 100) for messages sent through this connector. The routing cost determines the preference between multiple routes. Lower cost routes take precedence over higher cost routes. The default routing cost is 1. Load balancing across multiple connectors is achieved by assigning equal cost values for all connectors.

Removing an Address Space

You can remove an address space that is no longer necessary.

  1. In the Administrator window, choose the Configuration container.
  2. Double-click the connector to be modified.
  3. Select the Address Space tab.
  4. Select the address space to be removed.
  5. Choose Remove.

Modifying the Address Generator Format

When the connector is initially installed in a site, cc:Mail e-mail address generator creates an address of type CCMAIL (username at siteproxy) for every recipient, public folder, distribution list, and custom recipient in the site. During Setup, the site proxy name is derived from the Microsoft Exchange Server site name. The user name format can be configured.

Note   A site address name cannot be the same as an existing cc:Mail post office name.

Format specifier Name component
%g First name
%i Initials
%s Last name
%d Display name
%m Alias
%#(specifier) Specifies the number of characters for the user name. For example, the format specifier %3s for the last name Johnson generates Joh.

For example, the recipient Grover Smith in the site Ferguson will by default have the address format %s, %g at siteproxy, generating Smith, Grover at Ferguson. However, site names can be modified for multiple formats. The following table shows possible addressing for the display name Grover L. Smith in the site Ferguson.

Example Format
%d at Ferguson Grover L. Smith at Ferguson
%s.%g at Ferguson Smith.Grover at Ferguson
%s, %g %i at Ferguson Smith, Grover L. at Ferguson
%s, %2g at Ferguson Smith, Gr at Ferguson

  1. In the Administrator window, choose the Configuration container.
  2. Select an entry.
