query e- mail address from Groupwise server

Hello,

how can I query our Groupwise Server (Groupwise 2014 SP1 on SLES11 SP3) from our Cisco IronPort email and web security Gateway whether an e-Maill address exist or not. Perhaps over LDAP?
We want to eliminate SPAM-Mails before they reach our Groupwisesystem.

Thanks

  • Hans-Joachim,

    why don't you just use SMTP? The Ironport will contact the GWIA and one of the first steps is to check if the RCPT is valid. If not, the GWIA will reply with an error and the Ironport can do with the mail whatever it is configured to do. Ours is leaving thconnection to the sending SMTP process open while it checks with the GWIA and will issue an error as well.
