This bug raises only with SOGo or with all IMAP clients?
Again, if it's a bug of SOGo interface, please reject it.
I think it's not a SOGo issue. SOGo reads the group name from AD and respects its capitalization. On Dovecot's side the system getent() returns lowercase names, through the Samba NSS module. As ACLs are case sensitive the match does not occur.
I can't fix this. As workaround, use group names with lowercase letters only.
