Correct, ldap only for userdb. I found some old documentation that used
"bind" and "bind_pw" I think it was. That didn't work. I was just going
through some of my old dovecot ml stuff that I have saved. I just found
the dn and dnpass you mention (it doesn't seem to be in the
documentation, btw). I will likely not be able to try it out until tomorrow.

This is in an AD setup (Samba4). Do you or anyone else know if I need to
use a special port and whether ssl or tls (S4 no longer allows anonymous
binds and I want to make sure this is as secure as possible)?

Thank you,
Trever Adams
