I'm in the process of setting up smartsieve now, but I'm wondering how to write a hook for login details.
I see the sample in the conf.php, but I don't entirely understand what is going on or how to write my own. I'd like to have a hook that authenticates username and password against ldap, and pulls the server for them to login to.
Thanks for any help!

We use SmartSieve (http://smartsieve.sourceforge.net/) to
manage vacation/sieve scripts. We look up the appropriate backend
in our LDAP directory, but a DNS lookup could be done just as
easily. It is simple to setup an configure, 1.0RC2.

Currently, we have a home grown application that allows users to enable/disable vacation messages for their Cyrus accounts. This application is old and outdated, and needs to be replaced. I found the Horde vacation application which looks like it will meet my needs, but I have one issue. We currently have three Cyrus servers with all the accounts spread out across those three servers. The problem I am running into with any vacation application, is how to identify to the vacation application which server a user is on without the user needing to know this information. Is anyone else in a similar situation?
