Plugins - Retrieve User Data
Category: Administrator's Relief

This plugin retrieves the full name and the email address of a SquirrelMail user from an external source (currently LDAP, Microsoft AD, MySQL, /etc/passwd, PostgreSQL, plain text file, DB-style databases, VPoPMail) and writes them to the user's preferences file. Your users don't have to enter their name and email address before they write their first email. If you want to prevent or reduce misuse of your mail system, you can also forbid them to change their name and email address (From: line in email headers). You can also retrieve the users' data on every login to be up to date with your external source. If you don't want to use one of the supported data sources, you can write an extension to access other types of data sources.

Please have a look at the project homepage at http://retruserdata.sourceforge.net/.
