Description

IMAP shared mail folders does not work with mixed case group names.

Reproduce
  • Join AD domain, having a Sales group (note the name capitalization)
  • In SOGo share a mail folder with Sales group
  • Members of Sales group can't access the shared folder
Notes
  • Using an all-lowercase group name, such as dev, does not raise the problem.

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.
