going to access their mail?
* Login to Unix and use "mutt", "elm", "pine", ... ?
* Via qpopper or similar that access /var/spool/mail/$user mboxes?
* Via WU-IMAP (which also supports mbox)?
* Via Courier IMAP?
* Via Dovecot?
* Via Cyrus IMAP?

"postmap -q" as advised in DATABASE_README or LDAP_README? Did you or

cdb) and only then try LDAP?
