vPostMaster Recipes - How to Do Stuff
Switching from Cyrus SASL
saslauthd to Dovecot SASL (including non-PLAIN
authentication) (Contributed by Sean
Reifschneider of tummy.com) -- Switch from using the Cyrus SASL
saslauthd to Dovecot's SASL implementation. This allows SMTP
authentications to go directly against the database, instead of
using the "rimap" mechanism which causes SMTP to authenticate by
making a connection to the IMAP server. Hopefully, this will also
work around the bugs in Cyrus SASL.

to user+domain combinations (Contributed by Sean
Reifschneider of tummy.com) -- Setting up the login sub-system so
that one login name can be mapped to a specific user in a domain.
This enhances the Dovecot ability to add a default domain to users
without one, by allowing any login name (short or long) to be
mapped into a specific user. This allows "bob" to map to
"firstname.lastname@example.org" and "alice" to map to

Certificates (Contributed by Charles Woolridge) -- How to set
up a self-signed certificate and configure vPostMaster to use it.
Aliases for vPostMaster domains --

accounts that are set up with mailbox delivery disabled and
forwarding enabled. This is beneficial because all e-mail
addresses in a domain are handled the same, but here is a
recipe on how to set up traditional aliases.
