Your documentation, doc/sysadmin.html, says that in order to use a
shared secret authentication such as cram-md5, you can't use
saslauthd. However, my usernames and passwords are stored in clear
text in a ldap directory. I'd very much like Sendmail to be able to
authenticate people using the LDAP info and a shared secret
authentication method. sasldb doesn't work for us since we don't want
to keep a duplicate password list.
Is there any way to achieve this? Do I have to hack the source code?
If so, what do I hack?
It seems like it should be such an easy thing. The passwords are in
clear text. testsaslauthd works great via ldap. But cram-md5
authentication won't work for me.
I really appreciate any pointers you can give me.
