mail server authenticating to ldap

hi there people,
im setting up a portal website and would will be setting it up to authenticare against an ldap directory, im reasonably new to linux and would like some info on setting up a mail server to authenticate users against theldap directory.

the complicated part comes along when i require users belonging to specific groups to authenticate to different domains

e.g. ""

any help will be greatly appreciated.

my second question is wether or not i can setup apache to host subdomains in a similar fashion.

e.g. ""

is there some way i can intergrate these vhosts with the ldap directory so as that when i add/delete a group of users their subdomain is added/deleted as well?

once again any help would be greatly appreciated...

..even if i am told to look elsewhere =P

Perhaps you could elaborate on what the problem is when people are in different groups. Also, what software are you using?

I'm not aware of anything existing to create/delete vhosts based on an ldap directory but I suppose you could write a simple perl script that could be run by cron to do this quite easily.
