I have a task to reorganize the network resources of a medium company 
(~150 computers, 80% windows) which in the current state is very chaotic

I was thinking of a system where the users are stored in a single place, 
from where applications like mail (postfix), squid and even a domain 
controller can retrieve information

from your past experience, which does a better job - ldap or users 
stored in a mysql database ? I would appreciate your feedback or some 
links (I already have googled around and found several sources from 
where I am reading right now)

I would like to have the same user/password for at least mail & domain logon

thank you for your time,
