Timo, first as all thank's for your directions and work...
about the doveadm I will ty enabling ldap at the directors, I'm just having
a problem with this, using the recommended static config everything works
ok, but if I enable ldap exactly as in the backends, I mean ldap stuff and
auth, dovecot attemps to do all the imap, pop, ltmp local, where exactly I
must configure dovecot so use ldap for user list and keep using static
configs for director/proxy stuff??
best regards
