I'm trying to set up cyrus with virtual email accounts. So far I
it to work using a system account, but that is not what I want.
In my configuration /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd I have MECH=pam since
the compiled version of FC4 has only these options: getpwent
kerberos5 pam rimap shadow ldap.
Is it possible to set up cyrus to use virtual accounts with these
compiled authentication methods or do I need to recompile it?
It is possible, using sasldb instead of saslauthd, or by using saslauthd
with mech ldap or pam and a specific pam module like pam_ldap or
Can someone provide me with a good step by step guide on how to get
cyrus to work with virtual accounts?
I need the simplest method to accomplish this since this is my first
time setting up an email server.
And you then start with such a complex setup? This isn't advised as it
is hard to understand all the components and their interactions.
The "easiest" approach to run Cyrus-IMAPd with non system accounts and
virtual hosting is to use a sasldb2 auth backend.
