this is my first post to the list, I'm not a member, please cc me
I'm converting from courier imap, and want to bring a special problem
to your attention:
I would like to use auth_bind and prefetch, b/c due to data security
restriction the user information is only visible to the user himself.
From http://wiki.dovecot.org/AuthDatabase/LDAP I found out that
pass_attrs only works if no userdn template is set. But when unsetting
userdn, dovecot-auth still tries to find the information from
pass_attrs before binding.
I'm no coding expert so here is my question:
would it be possible to make pass_attrs work with userdn?
If yes, even prefetch would work.
right now, when using userdn, pass_attrs is ignored, but also userdb
and user_attrs is impossible for me, because it is done anonymously,
it can't reuse the bind from passdb, and can't construct a bind as
for now I defined a dummy user in ldap, but that's not the ideal
solution, since then this dummy user has access to all usernames,
uids, uidNumbers and gidNumbers.
thank you for your attention
ps: is there a list of all keywords and parameters?
