My IMAP server is a virtual user/domain setup (postfix & mysql &
courier-imap) that requires the full-fledged email-address and password
for user authentication. Horde is set up to authenticate users via IMP.
Any suggestions on how to use an alternate logon name?
The IMP::Options::Alternate IMSP Login does not seam to work for me...
Thank you!

Horde 3 and IMP 4

Thanks

No idea what you mean.

I'd like to use an alias for the IMAP user authenticaion. Is there an
easy way to map "firstname.lastname at verylongdomainname.com" to an
alias, i.e. "Nick"? Or at least avoid typing the domain name?
The ultimate solution would be to log on ONCE (horde and imp) with a
username that is either an alias or at least the e-mail address without
domain name.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

System users can log in this way.

You are right. The problem that I am having is that there are no real
IMAP user accounts on my system. They are all virtual and live in a
mysql database. That means that they have to authenticate with their
e-mail address.
I will persue Jan's suggestion with the vinfo hook and will post to the
list if successful. If that doesn't work I will try to add a field
"alias" to the database table and modify the authentication mechanism
for postfix/sql/courier.

If using IMP for authentication, you can use the vinfo hook.
