Thanks, will check it out.

Thanks, I'll probably use the ldap interface instead, since I need more
than only authentication. Postfix needs to know email addresses and
dovecot quota as well.

Nextcloud works out of the box, but if I want to manage quotas there,
I'll need to use extra attributes...

... which I need to configure somehow. Does anybody have good advice in
that regard? GOsa seems to be dead (that's what we are using now, I fear
 it'll die with our last server supporting PHP5), LAM has to be rented,
which I cannot do. Maybe I'll just use a general purpose LDAP client,
then I'll be independent from that kind of developments. But if anybody
is in a similar situation and has a good tool I missed, I would be grateful.

I guess I'm leaving the lists topic, sorry for the noise.
