well considering your using RHEL you could always change your mind and go the postfix route. edit your /etc/pam.d/dovecot file to using ldap auth like this - LDAP linux client with OpenLDAP server

then get postfix to use ldap aliases like this - OpenLDAP and postfix.

There is heaps of information about mail servers, Samba, ldap and LAM PDC's and all sorts of other things listed on my website below, check it out.
