We used to have a locally developed perl CGI gui that managed Cyrus
accounts and kept them synchronized with the info in our OpenLDAP server
automatically, but we wanted to reduce the amount of locally developed
code we were maintaining.
Now we use Webmin to create and manage Cyrus mailboxes, quotas, and so
on. Saslauthd authenticates against LDAP (recently migrated to Active
Directory). Postfix uses the AD server to distribute mail to groups.
Users manage their sieve scripts via a Roundcube plugin.
We have to manually synchronize Cyrus mailboxes with AD accounts when we
create or delete users, but otherwise all the pieces fit together very well.
