Configure the Directory Synchronization Client to search the LDAP directory and extract email addresses to a local file. (See the Directory Synchronization Client Administrator's Guide for instructions.) Review the results and modify the search as necessary to ensure it returns expected results.

In the cloud manager, set up a contact with Directory Synchronization permissions. (See Set up authentication.) This will be the username/logon used for the Directory Synchronization Client logs onto the cloud manager.
*
In the cloud manager, enable Directory Synchronization. (See Configure identity management.) Make sure "Reject mail for unknown users" is not enabled. (Turn this on only when you are sure the mail list is synchronized and correct)

During a slow period, select Replace on the client. Data is synchronized to the cloud manager. Note the number of email address additions.This is visible in the Synchronization page and also from the notification email messages.
*
Go to the cloud manager, Configure Directory Synchronization page and download a CSV file of email addresses. (See Configure identity management.) Check if these are correct, perhaps by comparing them against a known list from Active Directory.

If you are planning to set up per-user/per-group configurations for Antispam, Antivirus or Content Filter in email policies then do it now. Use the per-user link on each of these tabs to configure custom rules for each user or group. (You can enter user or group names into the per-user dialogs.) Refer to Configuring Email Settings for more information on per-user configuration options.
