dovecot pop3 + ldap

If ldap is enabled for storing users, do i need to change the setting on dovecot?

Pop3 doesn't seem to work at the moment. Just my curiosity.



Are you able to login as those users via other means, such as FTP or SSH?

To setup LDAP, you'd need to go through this document here:

One of the things it describes is setting up PAM -- once PAM is setup, that should in theory handle logins for Dovecot (POP3), as well as the other login mechanisms.

That is, if you can login via FTP or SSH, it should work for Dovecot (POP3) as well.

Also, make sure that your /etc/pam.d/dovecot file is setup to use LDAP, unless it is like :

auth       required
auth       include      system-auth
account    include      system-auth
session    include      system-auth

In which case it will inherit from the global PAM settings.
