Re: Mailserver with accounts seperated from unix-accounts

The setup I have uses Postfix with cyrus as the IMAP server and the delivery
agent. I do not use a RDBMS, just a single db file. Since Cyrus uses SASL
for the authentication process, you need to take a look at sasl +

Anyway, you can find the doc at http://dudle.linuxroot.org. If you find a
way to get Cyrus to authenticate via MySQL or another RDBMS, I would like to
hear from you :-)
