    Default Authentication via ODBC or SQL possible?

    Greetings,
    Is it possible to authenticate users via ODBC? If not, does Zimbra have a JDBC or PostgreSQL.org driver?
    Thank you,
    -pc

    Not currently. At this point we only support internal or an external LDAP connection. I'm planning on providing more extensive support for other mechanisms in the near feature though, including a way for someone to write their own.

    People adventurous enough to play with source can look at authAccount in LdapProvisioning.java in ZimbraServer.

    Default re:

    I never used "LDAP", is there an easy way to export username/password list from MS Access to be accessable by Zimbra? And perhaps even batch it to export every 10mins or so?

    If you have the cleartext password, then you could use the zmprov program to create accounts and/or set the password if it changes.

    to create accounts:

    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov ca account@your.domain thepassword [other attrs]
    to set the password on an existing account:

    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov sp account@your.domain thepassword
