Hi list

Got an odd "problem" here.

But, ive followed the howtos etc getting pam authentication to work etc

Ive just setup imap, the domain username is "test"

When I run getent passwd im returned with 

DEV-DOMAIN+test:x:10012:10023:test test:/home/DEV-DOMAIN/test:/bin/false

When I logon onto the windows 2k3 AD as test, it all logs on, sees the Home
drive on the samba server (authenticates etc) but when I setup imap it wont
let me logon.

dev1 imapd[11078]: Login failed user=test auth=test host=[]
dev1 imapd[11079]: Login failed user=test auth=test host=[]
dev1 imapd[11083]: Login failed user=test auth=test host=[]

But when I change the user name on the mail client to what getent password
sees (i.e DEV-DOMAIN+test)

dev1 pam_winbind[11077]: user 'DEV-DOMAIN+test' granted access
dev1 imapd[11077]: Login user=DEV-DOMAIN+test host=[]

It works!

Why wont it accept just "test" since I cannot expect my users to put in

Any thoughts/ideas/magical faq page ive over looked??
