This has been a work in progress for about 2-3 years, so I guess it's 
technically abandoned at this point. :)

However, it goes into detail of how to get Courier and Postfix both playing 
nice with LDAP via SASL and might be of some use to you. Everything was done 
(and still works) on a debian system I use, so I imagine this will translate 


If you like hooking into LDAP, I have some ruby scripts which make adding new 
domains/users/aliases trivial, but they're not in that document. Feel free to 
email me privately if you want them.
