The authenticationserver  Auth option specifies the hostname and port for a third-party authentication service to use for authentication. This option is also available at imapproxy and popproxy level (to override, for the respective server, the general Auth option). The recommended value is :56 when a third-party authentication service is available on the loopback interface of the server process performing authentication. For developer instructions and SDK see the directory msg_svr_base/examples/tpauth.

When not set, the servers will authenticate via LDAP.
