IMAP Proxy in front of DBMail -- GSSAPI, etc password issues
Hi list,

I have just set up a Dovecot proxy in front of DBMail. I would like
Dovecot to handle all authentication because I need to use GSSAPI and/or
LDAP credentials. The proxying works great when I use the LDAP password
(authdriver is set to ldap). But of course DBMail can't bind to the LDAP
server with whatever credentials it's being given when I hit Dovecot
with a GSSAPI token.

It seems like what I need is a way for DBMail to accept any password its
given, or a way for Dovecot to send the same password to DBMail for
every login. Neither of these things appear possible right now. What are
my options for getting GSSAPI logins to work with DBMail?

Hi Erick,

You could set Dovecot proxy to always send an adminpass, that can be set
in the dbmail.conf.

That way it will be possible for the dovecot proxy to access any of your
dbmail accounts with
the same password.

For this you'll need to recompile the dbmail after the applying
adminpass patch.

Here is the link where I've got the adminpass patch
http://www.dbmail.org/mantis/view.php?id=939
for my own configuration.
