Hi Guys, I had no luck so far getting openchange installed onto samba 4.1.4
and wondered if I am on the right track here regarding emails for users. I
will appriciate it if anyone can share their setups with me so I can
estimate what will be the best way forward.


The plan so far.


Run Samba4 as a file server.
(this is working in a test enviroment)

Run Samba4 as a DC with Active Directory
(this is working in a test enviroment)

Run (OpenChange) as an alternative for Microsoft Exchange          (this is
so far not working out for us as we cannot get openchanged installed on an
already working samba4 setup)


So here is the question.


Do we just use a linux IMAP server instead? In our company we use POP
accounts on our email clients and would like to use IMAP to help users who
travel to pickup mail. This was the main reason why we wanter to use SOGO

Can we connect the IMAP users to Samba4 or do we need to create a linux user
for IMAP? Just thinking here if the users change their passwords with samba4
if that password will carry on into the IMAP config and change the email
passwords or will we need to manually change the email passwords if the two
cannot be linked together. 


Please share your setup with me if you do not mind. You don't need to
provide detailed config's etc just a general overview of what you have in
place at the moment that works for you.


Thank you
