In fact that CDO is using the epmapper and other RPC-services for authentication my idea was to try this with samba4 - because i saw that the samba team is working verry hard on the msrpc-implementation. Now i played araound a little bit with samba4 and saw that the internal ldap-server looks like an AD-Contoller. Thats pretty fine, but now i have to findout two things to bring my demand forward:

does Scalix provides it's own ldap services, and authenticats against another ldap server?
