I thing I found the use for loginrealms option.

I works like a filter.

Imagine you have an authentication infrastructure for multiple
domains:, .....
I could be running on ldap, kerberos, ....

Then you have an imap server that manage users only for domain
If you set


then user from will be able to authenticate, but any
operation on a mailbox will fail
because they don't have one (or access to any one).

If you set


then the same user will be rejected at authentication !
