    Can I configure around 900 of users against /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow files, in terms of performance?
    This is for an email server.
    Or do I must use openLDAP?

    Yes, but the authentication is not the performance bottleneck. Performance killers are spam and virus scanners, so you should keep an eye on them.

    Ok, thanks, I understand.
    Do you know a script to export a openLDAP password database, MD5 encryptation, to a /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow ?
