Communigate Pro with LDAP Authentication

With all the issues related to Sarbanes-Oxley compliancy, and contracts being written to cover all losses and lawsuits related to any security breach in network setup these days, along with the desire for System Administrators to manage all of their user accounts from one location, I’ve been looking into getting an existing Communigate Pro mail setup authenticating to OS X Server’s built in Open Directory.

Stalker are kind enough to provide a link to an LDAP authentication plugin, however, this script is built for plain/clear text passwords – which I might add drops the plain text password into the Communigate Pro logs also.

I’m looking to hear from anyone who has got Communigate Pro integrated into their LDAP environment, and how they’ve dealt with the password situation.
