I have what is probably a fairly unusual requirement and am wondering if
anyone can suggest a possible solution.
I am currently migrating a large number of IMAP/POP accounts from one
server to another. The old server using a schema of CLIENTID-0,
CLIENTID-1 etc as the naming schema, and it is required that the new
server use the user at domain naming schema.
I am looking for a way to maintain multiple logins for the mailboxes, so
that it is not necessary for every client to change their login details.
So, for example a user can log in as OLDUSER-1 or user at domain.com and go
to the same mailbox.
Does anyone have a working configuration for this?
I have been working on the problem using saslauthd with Linux PAM. PAM
has a mechanism to allow you to change the users username during login,
which is used in the pam_ftp module. However, my cursory looks at the
code seem to indicate that any changes to this value will not be carried
down the path from PAM -> saslauthd -> imapd.
