I have setup my Ubuntu 13.4 machine with LDAP authentication. However when I try to send email, I am getting the following message:

 auth: pam_unix(dovecot:account): account has expired (account expired)
Sep  3 19:05:03  auth: pam_unix(dovecot:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=dovecot ruser=XXXX rhost=::1  user=XXXX

Really not sure where to start... I can id and id and that works fine.

Can anyone provide some guidance?
