For my own use I've switched to the LDAP as provider of user
information and credentials (for Dovecot/Postfix/ejabberd/anything I
can get to talk to the LDAP). It's not that hard to figure out, but
getting used to LDAP itself can take a little bit of time.

In my case I'm using the LDAP just for checking if a user is present on
the system and for authentication purposes (for the mail server).

Haven't tried using quota etc with LDAP.

Anything in particular you're having problems coping with? :)
