i'd like to use dovecot to authenticate from ldap. in ldap each user has
it's uniq uid and gid. unfortunately with postfix we can't use uniq
uid/gid since in this case we have ot create all user's home in advance.
so we decided to use uniq uid and a common gid in postfix since in
this case postfix can create new users maildir and deliver new mails. so
i'd like to use everyone's own uid in dovecot, but a common gid (same as
in postfix). but how can i do so? i read the wiki, but the problem is if
auth_userdb = ldap /etc/dovecot-ldap.conf
then i have to define ldap attrib name in dovecot-ldap.conf:
user_attrs = mail,,,uid,uidNumber,gidNumber
what should i use in the last field in user_attrs?
or it's not possible with dovecot to define this?
i'd be very said in this case:-(
thanks in advance.
