Thanks Ondrej,

although not directly the cause you did manage to get me in the right
direction.

selinux and permissions were fine, it was actually tailing to locate the
mailbox... i went through quite a few logs to find out that the auth
requests were actually successful to IPA..

one extra line was needed in dovecot.conf to allow it to work. However
this was not an ipa issue at all.

mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u

Clearly dovecot was looking in the wrong location for a mail file.

Cheers

Dale
