HI Dimitri,

Thanks, but it seems following the kolab devs that if kolab cannot
determine the base dn, the other two do not matter.

So what would you change exactly ?

I assume you use IPA as an LDAP server.
In the Kolab config I would change

                 'email'             => 'mail',


                 'email'             => 'uid',

In IPA I would use "name" in the uid and name@domain in email (as IPA creates) by default.
and then try to log into Kolab using name.

So for me it would look like this:

In ipa:
uid: dpal
mail: d...@mydomain.com

There might be need changed more.

I hope we can get this fixed !

Hi Dimitri,

All I can say about that is that it's configured and uses ldap this
this added to ldap:

Here you can use uid instead of mail.
Then user will be able to login into Kolab with a simple name instead of the
longer mail.
Then you would be able to put n...@domain.tld into the mail attribute.

It seems that Kolab assumes that mail is a single valued attribute in the
directory while in general it is not the case.
So the best would be to use come other attribute for login.

Does this help you some ?
