AutoConfig client as an optional module for Email


Should be nice to have this kind of feature available…

It is available, just not as an “official” module.

Should be! Your job is amazing.

Thanks, but there’s really quite a bit of work left–I got it to the point where it did what I needed it to do and stopped. The remaining issues that I can think of are:

  • Get the LDAP connection working (both with OpenLDAP and AD) to pull the user’s full name from the server
  • Figure out why the signed .mobileconfig files don’t include the intermediate certificate (which causes errors trying to import them on iOS devices)
  • Come up with a server-manager panel to control it

On the first, I’ve had this issue open on GitHub for over a year, but being a complete n00b to Python haven’t been able to get very far. I’ve poked into the second a little bit but honestly don’t remember what was going on there; I haven’t touched the third issue at all yet.

Edit: Of course, a PR is always welcome:
