Opechange requires Samba4. Samba4 and Samba3 can not be run simultaneously on
the same machine. I recommend setting up a completely separate vanilla
machine as a test mail server with all required services (postfix, dovecot,
samba4, sogo, openchange) in order to test Outlook connectivity. If you are
happy with the results, you can plan a Samba3 -> Samba4 migration first
(which will give you undoubtedly benefit on it’s own) followed by mail server
migration (current server -> openchange).

I would not bother with any black magic trying to achieve the impossible -
vanilla setup is complex enough on it’s own to get it right.

Hope this helps,
