I am trying for the first time to set up Cyrus (3.0.4 & 3.0.5) with ptloader, sasl auxprop, etc.  Even though I've used LDAP for many years, I've only ever used saslauthd with mech=ldap or mech=pam, and a fairly simple configuration.  For example:

   ldap_servers: ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fopenldap%2fldapi
   ldap_bind_dn: cn=proxyUser,ou=systems,dc=example,dc=com
   ldap_bind_pw: secret
   ldap_search_base: dc=example,dc=com

When I search my archive of the cyrus-devel list, the only references to ldap in the subjects are you making some commits to the old Phabricator system.  Unfortunately all of the associated tracking from that era is gone.  Could you perhaps provide some guidance on this? (see below)  I've looked in the modern-day equivalent to the affected documents listed below, but don't see many notes on LDAP.

I was hoping to write up some comprehensive documentation on using LDAP with Cyrus, as there is currently nothing beyond the imapd.conf(5) man page.  Any help you could provide would be most welcome.  The only cogent examples I find online are all from you, but are many years old, so I have no frame of reference as to how accurate they still are.  If you would prefer to discuss this off-list, or via phone, please advise.

Specifically, I am trying to configure so that users may authenticate with either just UID (i.e. "nic") or email address (i.e. "n...@onlight.com").  The saslauthd example shown above does just this, but Cyrus still only works with the simple user ID, not the email address, which is what leads me to trying ptloader and auxprop.

Anyone else,
I would welcome working LDAP configuration examples from any and all, just remember to obfuscate or remove any security information.

Thanks in advance,
