Hi Steve,

Thanks for reply.

Yes, you are right, i bound ZEG to an existing AD. It's clear that SOGo got no User when he login first time. But i can't believe that this scenario was not considered. Maybe i have to setup the local Samba as an secondary LDAP, but i dont want to. The other possibility is to customize ZEG in this way that the user will be created during login if he doesn't exist.

I will check your advice and create a local user who already exist in my AD.

After successfully login (browser) i'll get "object not found: SOGo =>" (where is the username for login).
It sounds as though the ZEG is using the Microsoft AD to authenticate users but cannot find a mailbox.

I'm not certainly, but I'd suspect it might require the user mailboxes being created on the ZEG

The ZEG used Dovecot/Postfix, so you need to check those to see if it allows the creation of virtual mailboxes.

I have not looked at the current ZEG, and it's quite a bit different than some of the previous ones.

Try creating a "test" user on both the ZEG and in your AD to see if you get a mailbox.

Someone else will have to give you some pointers on using the ZEG in an existing AD

Also with Outlook i can't login into openchange (Message here even more


Do i need the local LDAP-Users to get openchange/SOGo to work? What is the
