Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Reference

Locating and Loading the Mapping File

All mappings are kept in the MTA mapping file. (This is the file specified with the IMTA_MAPPING_FILE option in the MTA tailor file; by default, this is msg-svr-base/config/mappings.) The contents of the mapping file is incorporated into the compiled configuration.

The mapping file should be world readable. Failure to allow world-read access leads to erratic behavior.
