Do you know if any of those can be configured to use the global
ldap.conf settings?

When I first used dovecot in an LDAP environment, I patched it so it
could handle a ldaps server or a "use the library's default" setting
(I think that part of the patch has been lost in a later version of
dovecot, unfortunately).

My experience is that the admin is much happier when there is only one
place to configure the ldap server settings.

Also, what kind of tls configuration were you using?
