Hi Lars

When the parameter SOGoLDAPGroupExpansionEnabled is set to YES in sogo.conf, a new button should appear to expand groups in the mail editor and attendees editor:

Hello Christian,

did I misinterpret this "mail(js): new button to expand recipients that
are LDAP groups" in then?

Best regards

AFAIK: Those buttons only exist for attendees and privileges, not for
Emails will be sent to the group email address, which are resolved
into recipients by the SMTP and/or IMAP server.

Kind regards,

Hello all,

I saw that with SOGo 4.2.0 a button has been added to expand LDAP groups
in the mail editor.

But I seem to be unable to meet the requirements to get the button
enabled. In the calendar the groups are expanded. So There the
requirements are met. Which Fields have to set (and how) in the LDAP (AD
in my case) so that this very useful functionality can be activated?

An example of our groups (redacted with privacy things, e.g. the group
has more members than me):

version: 1

dn: CN=Team-mOps,OU=Mitarbeiter,DC=intern,DC=punkt,DC=de
objectClass: group
objectClass: top
groupType: -2147483646
instanceType: 4
cn: Team-mOps
distinguishedName: CN=Team-mOps,OU=Mitarbeiter,DC=intern,DC=punkt,DC=de
