SOGo/Openchange is not willing i f it is not holding the fsmo roles. And by
the way in an multiple DC replicating environment you can kill your domain
on the fly even with
a real "Exchange-Server" if you are not carefull  enough.
So the only way to make OPenchange live in your domain ist o join it as dc.
And status of development as far as I know this is hard to do.
Or you manage to provision as new domain and write a script per scp to add
users to both domains.

Good Luck

thx, Bob . . .

The e-mail problems appears to be a permissions and summary file issue.

I gave the users Administrative permissions, and everything worked
perfectly.  Then I compacted the folders and rebuilt the summary files, took
away Administrator permissions, and everything STILL works perfectly.

When I posted the question, I wondered if there was some step in joining the
mailserver I'd missed.

I'm told when Microsoft Exchange is installed, it adds entries to Active
Directory, and I wondered about alternative mailservers.  I see no place in
the ADUC MMC to identify the SOGo/Dovecot mailserver.

The same server functions as the Samba AD DC, and alternatively, I wondered
if I should use a Windows Server as a Domain Controller pointing back to
Samba AD DC  Would that identify my mailserver?

I also don't understand why the ADUC MMC failed to created a "new" user.
