IIRC the UW server is the redhat one.  The Cyrus server allows you to put a 
mail server on a linux boxen w/o adding actual accounts on the machine, 
allowing an administrator to lock down access to that machine.  Currently Cyrus
supports authnication from a U*ix passwor file, or Kerberos.  Adding pam 
support would allow an administrator (like myself) *lots* more options for
authentication (i.e. Radius, NT_pdc/SMB, LDAP, etc.). I'm sure that it's just
a matter of programming :-)

any help that anyone could give me on this would be greatly appreceated.  I 
have just enough C/C++ experiance to be dangerous, but I'm sure that I could 
cobble together some bits and make the work if I had some help.

Thanks in advance,

Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
