I'm just starting to look at this, and I'm sure I'll have plenty more questions but I just have one for now. I'm using ldapsearch on a Linux box just for tests, and while I can query the directory if I specify -x (which means use plain text) if I don't do this, and SASL is used, I can't connect. I get this:

SASL/DIGEST-MD5 authentication started
Please enter your password:

and after entering the password I get

ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Invalid credentials (49)
        additional info: account is not available on this system

Looking in the CGPro logs I see this

22:33:07.80 1 LDAP-00006([]) failed to open 'root'. Connection from []. Error Code=account is not available on this system

When I first saw this error I created root as an alias for postmaster, and when that didn't work I created a separate root account, but still no joy.  If I use -x, I don't even get asked for a password and I get what I ask for.

Any suggestions?

Kindest regards,
