Re: [Evolution] IMAP or POP3 accounts

sounds like what you want is Kerberos (and GSSAPI for IMAP

I am considering replacing Outlook on our network (approximately 100 
clients) with evolution.

However, i have a number of questions regarding the central management 
of Evolution IMAP and POP3 account data for each user in a network:

1. The windows logon provides a single sign on for both windows and 
outlook. Meaning that when a user changes his/her password in windows 
this is automatic for outlook too. Is it possible to achieve a similar 
thing using Evolution and active directory?
2. If this is not possible with active directory then would it be 
possible using Novell Edirectory? I.e if i would move from active 
directory to novell edirectory for signing on, is there somehow an 
integration between Evolution and edirectory which would obsolete the 
need for the user to regularly change his IMAP or POP3 passwords even if 
he changes his windows or edirectory logon?

If both are not available, does anyone know whether Novell is working on 
such an integration? Surely this would make sense for both Evolution and 
Edirectory users and since both are owned by Novell....

And if not, does anyone know if this would be relatively easily 
developed for Evolution? If there is demand from other users too i would 
consider developing such an add-on module.
