    Default Choice of auth backend?

    It would be nice if it was possible to specicy in account settings whether to use AD/LDAP/whatever specified in the domain's authentication settings or just auth this user against the internal database. Would also allow admin access in case something happens with the LDAP backend.

    This would be very handy for quick'n'dirty mailboxes without needing to create the accounts in the main user database.

    zmprov md <domain> zimbraAuthFallbackToLocal TRUE

    This will enable fallback to local auth if external auth is down - handy for admin accounts.
