Re: saslAuthzTo and regexp troubles

Hi Pierangelo,

thanks for your reply. I tried

saslAuthzTo: dn.regexp: uid=.*,ou=MailCustomers,dc=bestsolution,dc=at

... which is wrong because of the whitespace between "dn.regexp: uid"
and even worse "dn.regexp:" should be "dn.regex:".

For the sake of consistency I think sasl-regexp should somewhen be
renamed to sasl-regex as well ...

And your dn.onelevel is even better of course :-)
