I experienced some problems with authenticate.
seems like the mail clients like thunderbird send their base64 string in
ISO- encoding, which doesnt work on my dovecot setup if there are some
I am not able to login as
"ömer" for example
If I authenticate from telnet with an base64 encoded utf-8 string like
'echo -en "\0ömer\0Start12" |base64'
everything works fine
-userdb is an openldap which queries an windows AD so results are in
utf8, I think.
any clues at which point to fix this are welcome ;)
