Mail Server Authentication via LDAP

I have setup a MailServer on RedHat 8.0 with Horde/IMP, sendmail, MailScanner and SpamAssassin. I am looking for a database to store and authenticate user accounts.
Well, the nearest one I can think of is using LDAP.

a. Do I have to configure sendmail/IMAP to use LDAP?
b. Where will the user's mailboxes be?
c. Can I use procmail to filter mails per user, currently I have a procmailrc file in the users' home directory?
d. Also is it possible to make a signup page for LDAP?

Can anyone clear my views on LDAP?

Mail server and ldap authentication
I found a nice product called Bynari Insight server. It is a mail server and has a OpenLDAP server to authenticate users against. Nice and inexpensive too...
