0003456: DOVECOT Master User not working with SOGo frontend
I've SME Server ( with DOVECOT backend and 2 front end: HORP/IMP and SOGO.

Have enabled everything to make master user possible, and confirmed it works as expected with HORDE/IMP. But when I try to use SOGo I receive an error telling me the user/password is wrong. It's not wrong... but user is <someone>*admin and it's admin password.
This exact combination works at HORDE/IMP.

A friend of mine tell me (becasuse I'm not a programmer) the error is because SOGO verify user using LDAP (or something like that) and do not work/will not work with Master User feature of DOVECOT.

If you need help to debug or any debug file, just ask. I'm here to help.

So you want an enhancment for SOGo to authenticate against IMAP/Dovecot?

Hum... I'm not sure if it's an enhancement... I'm just reporting a strange behaviour... maybe a bug. Not sure if it's a NFR or a BUG.
I'm sure it's a very usefull feature of dovecot allowing admin log as any user and this is not supported by SOGo.
And SOGo is the webmail I use and recomend.
Maybe it's simple to fix or a worthy new feature... but I'm just a reporter. :)

SOGo can only authenticate users defined in an authentication sources (LDAP and SQL sources are supported). We don't plan to change this.
