Thank you Timo, but I can't authenticate once more... I put 
*default_pass_scheme = SSHA* and *pass_attrs = uid,userPassword* in 
dovecot-ldap.conf and now in the log I find

> Oct  6 08:19:02 PDC-SMB dovecot-auth: ldap(username): Unknown password scheme SSHA

Signify that the backports dovecot package I've installed in my Debian 
Woody doesn't have SSHA support? Where can I get the SSHA password 
scheme? If I must re-compile dovecot myself, have you some link where is 
explaind in deeper how to do it?

Thank you very very much for your help
