I never got LDAP to work -- I think I'm currently using POP3 
authentication.  I point to the OSX server, but just make sure email is 

No, actually I lied.  I'm using POP3, but I'm pointing it at my email 
server (Linux) which authenticates to the OSX server.  It seems to work 

(Also, I should check my spam filter, this is the first K12OSN email 
I've gotten in months...)
