I'm floundering. I want to have an ldap directory where I add users, and have pretty much everything in my organization authenticate to that... can't find a howto that really accomplishes this

Hi,

openldap isn't that easy at all, and there are so many ways to do it... :wink:

For example: you could have an ldap-sheme that uses virtual users like it is often done with postfix/mysql authentication.

My advice is to build everything else first (every service), as postfix itself doesn't come with an ldap-sheme, and the used fields are dependent on your setup... Probably another scheme used for another service already provides the desired fields, and you don't have to build up a sheme on your own...
If you then have the desired fields, its pretty straight forward to configure postfix and courier to use them.

Sorry, but I can only recommend to read a book about openldap (i've read one from addison-wesley, if i remember right), if you really want to get the most out of it!

Cheers
