It's Friday afternoon and 13th!  My brain is starting to ache after spending the morning trying to diagnose an issue with shared mailboxes using SOGo 2.2.5 and Dovecot 2.2.9 on a new server build under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.  So, I thought I would see if anyone on the list can assist me?

I've narrowed the problem down to the username being inserted by SOGo into my shared dictionary file.  When I add an entry via the SOGo web UI I get the following style of line written:


However, if I use the IMAP ACL extension for Thunderbird and do the same thing it yields:

    shared/shared-boxes/user/ /

With the domain name specified in both entries everything works fine in both Thunderbird and the SOGo web UI.

So, I guess my question is, where does SOGo get the username of the person I'm sharing a mail folder with?  We're using a Samba 4 Active Directory as the source for users and as far as I can tell everything else is working fine.  By turning mail_debug on in Dovecot I can see that the ACL plugin is indeed checking for the full e-mail address of the user, rather than just their username.

My guess would be to change UIDFieldName in sogo.conf from it's current value of sAMAccountName to mail?  However, my understanding is that would break all calendars and addressbooks in the database as they then wouldn't be associated with their owners.  Is there a way to fix this if I need to do it?

Thanks in advance for any assistance...
