One thing you will probably need is the pam_mysql lib. If you're using an
RPM-based system, you can get them from
http://www.noidea.us/easyfile/index.php?folder=5 where I rebuilt the old
MDK packages (v0.4.7) with pam_mysql 0.5. I've got the original package
available as well as the SRPM and RPM for 0.5.
I'm running Postfix, Dovecot, Squirrelmail and Maia/Amavisd-new/ClamAV
against MySQL right now for ~8 virtual users and 7 virtual domains, with a
little hacking on Postfixadmin to create MySQL-crypt and MD5 passwords so
that Postfix, Dovecot, SASL and Maia can all authenticate correctly.
I've been meaning to write this up into a HOWTO-doc, but I'm a) waiting on
Dovecot 1 final, and b) waiting to get some new hardware to rebuild my
mailserver. I'll eventually get this doc written, but if you need any
other info in the meantime, I can pull my configs and see what I have to
