I noticed that OpenLDAP (or another LDAP provider) is required. Does this imply I need to create an inetorgperson for my existing local users who will have email addresses at various domains? Forgive my lack of experience with LDAP in a POSIX environment, but what are the ramifications of having an LDAP user and a local user for the same person? Or, is there some way to import local users? I have asked a more complete version of this question at Thanks in advance.


It doesn't really matter if you have LDAP users that duplicate users on your system. You would have to specifically configure your system to use LDAP or it will continue to use /etc/passwd by default. SOGo can be the sole user of LDAP on your system without any ill effects. There are several basic LDAP howtos on the Web. Just follow one and don't be too concerned about making things complicated as SOGo only requires the most basic of attributes.
