Currently the LDAP implementation for maildrop only support storing
the users information within an LDAP directory, to let maildrop know
where to find the maildir, what userid to deliver the mail as, what the
quota is, etc... There is no support currently for accessing LDAP
features from within a maildrop filter.
Basically, LDAP 'virtual user' support is just that .. support for a
'virtual user', one that does not necessarily exist as a local user
account... (allowing for many users to have mail accounts without system
accounts .. and even sharing a single uid/gid, when there is no need for
a system account).

Subject: [maildropl] Questions about LDAP virtual user and deliverquota
I have installed courier-maildrop 1.3.4 in my setup which
consists of Qmail-1.03, qmail-ldap patch 20010501, openldap 1.2.11 and
I read about LDAP virtual user database extension. I editted
maildropldap.config and put it in /etc. What should I do after that? How
do I access the attributes from the mail drop filter file? There's no
further documentation at all about how this LDAP virtual user database
integrate into the maildrop filter.
Also, courier-imap 1.3.8 comes with deliverquota program
with size 71851 bytes while the deliverquota that comes with courier
mail drop is 16652. Which one should i place in /usr/local/bin?
Am i right to say that whenever we do an IMAP append command on
Courier-IMAP, it is actually invoking "deliverquota" program behind the
Thank you in advance.
