I googled the LDAP config and read through all the how-to's only took me a
couple of days to get it working. Mind you that was the first mail server I
ever configured. It's still running fine. I think I use the saslauth direct to LDAP
auth on Fedora Core 2. I think I installed all rpm's using yum.
I do recall it being a bit of a hairy experience until I started building the system up
in a very methodical way. One trick is definately to us the testsaslauthd -u user -p pass command.
