First, let me say that I'm rather novice when it comes to Zimbra, but I hope you guys can help me out.

I'm looking for a way to authenticate against Zimbra users via the admin account (IMAP). I found this thread that suggest that the login-string would be something like:

. LOGIN user*admin adminpassword
However, the user clearly states that it didn't work, hence this post.

I've search the forum and the web for some time, but I can't find any clear answers and/or official documentation on this.

I'm also curious if this feature is enabled by default.
