Doing a new install on a server, postfix, authdaemond on a Gentoo box.
Postfix seems to be up and running fine and I can see authdaemond querying
the mysql database but my limited knowledge of authdaemond and courier has
me at a loss on how to proceed further.
I created the database from a script I found in the docs and obviously the
database table is empty since I just created it.
My question is this;
What are the mechanics of postfix where when I create a new user, how it is
that a user is created or associated with the mysql.passwd table?
I type in what command at the command line which causes which module to
insert user auth data into mysql.passwd
What tools sucks user info from ? and spits it into mysql.passwd to allow
Looking for docs on this and finding little on how which modules interact.

No such scripts exist in Courier (don't know about postfix). It is your
responsibility to create them or to locate tools to do so.
The SQL modules are mostly useful to people who have existing SQL
management tools. If you don't, then use a module for which you do have
management tools. Don't use MySQL for the sake of using MySQL.
