    SMTP 550 5.1.1 Unknown or illegal alias: uid@domain

      Hello, I have recently installed Java System Messaging Server and details of 'imsimta version' are as follow
      bash-3.00# ./imsimta version
      Sun Java(tm) System Messaging Server 6.2-3.04 (built Jul 15 2005)
      libimta.so 6.2-3.04 (built 01:32:55, Jul 15 2005)
      SunOS mail 5.10 Generic_118855-14 i86pc i386 i86pc
      The problem is that I have created a user on my directory server. On my web client I can login using this user, I can send mail throught this user, but the only issue is that when I send mail to this user server returns me an error " SMTP 550: 5.1.1 Unknown or illegal alias: uid@domain".
      I have not created this user through any graphical uitility, but I created a LDIF file for this user and used "laddmodify" to creat user. I have also matched the attributes of this LDIF with the admin user which was automatically generated during my installation and admin account is working very much fine.
      Can any one help me in this issue.

          It's likely that you missed something in the creation of your user.

          There are exactly two supported methods of creating a valid user:


          and Delegated Admin

          Without you posting both ldap entries, how can I tell if you missed something?

          I suggest using:

          commadmin user create

          don't forget to follow the documentation, to add the "service" to the domain first, and also to each user.
