I'm in the process to choose between Courier and Dovecot.
I would like to know if it's possible to configure Dovecot in order to 
use multiple user database (e.g. ldap+passwd) in order to have both 
virtual user authenticated by LDAP and system user authenticated by 
system password and with their own home directory.

Another question: at http://dovecot.org/doc/dovecot-example.conf there 
is a configuration example that seems not work with Dovecot
It result in a "Fatal: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot.conf 
line 391: Missing value".
Line 391 is: "auth default {"

Thank you for attention.
Best regards.
