thanks, guys for the suggestions . . .

I do appreciate them. I will not be getting back to this until later today, but I'll start with some fresh ideas.

I'm still confused by it.

" " accesses the Samba ldap server and authenticates the users.

I see that in SOGo, as it accesses the "sogo" table in MySQL and authenticates the users.

But " " is not allowing Postfix/Dovecot to access the Samba ldap server.

It must not be a valid account for Postfix/Dovecot to "read" (that's all I see about it)

Yes, I've read and read the Arch Wiki, and I'm sure I'm as ignorant as the day is long, but it's not helping. Neither have I found the right documentation in the SOGo Installation Guide (again, being ignorant)

I don't have any problem with any of that. I just want it to work, and I'm confused by my results.

Well both postfix and dovecot need to have users that can access port 389 on samba server. Samba is running its own ldap server just like server 2008/2012 domain controller. I would recommend creation of user that can access ldap on samba and it would read user names. You can test with administrator but what are the security risks. I have samba running as domain controller and openchange.
I had followed archlinux wiki on openchange it explains it well the steps as does sogo wiki

You can integrate iredmail with active directory, so possibly this page will give you the necessary hints:
