I am positive that most of the above will work with kerberos
authentication, the only exception is 'Mail server'. This is only
because saying 'Mail server' is a bit like saying 'I have a computer',
it could be anything, but whatever it is, you probably can use kerberos
and if Dovecot is in the mix, you definitely can use kerberos.
