Of course, this would be possible, but for one qmail-ldap is
definitely the nicest packaged qmail-patch-collection around (big
compliment to the authors!) and on the other hand we plan to use the
LDAP-features in the future.
Therefore my question is really an operational one: how could I turn
off the LDAP server so qmail-ldap still feels ok?
Thanks for your answer anyway!
