It seems to me that the proper place to achieve this integration is
during the SMTP authentication process.  If all IMAP users should be
allowed to use SMTP, then it's easy to do by checking the IMAP
authentication database.  If only certain IMAP users should be allowed
to use SMTP, it becomes a bit more complicated.  A good way to isolate
all of the authentication and authorization is to do it with PAM
