I'm trying to run Kolab 2 in a FreeBSD Jail, and am having problems. 
I am wondering if anyone has successfully gotten Kolab 2 to work in a
FreeBSD Jail, and if so, what have they done?

The install part works fine, but when I get to recieiving email it
doesn't work. I'm not even sure what logs to post to even start.  For
the Jail I create it following the recipe in jail(8) for creating a
new jail.  The only additional service I enable are ssh to remotely
manage.  I disable the local sendmail installation.

Steps I do to install Kolab in FreeBSD Jail
1) Get obmtool & obmtool.conf
2) Modify obmtool.conf as follows:
--- obmtool.conf~       Fri Jan 21 09:30:36 2005
+++ obmtool.conf        Fri Jan 21 09:30:36 2005

CWD or absolute path
+    plusloc='='
+    altloc='='

     # Check for presence of libgcrypt in the host system

3) Run kolab_bootstrap -b
4) Run /kolab/bin/openpkg rc all start
5) Add users

After that I add users named test at machine.domain.tld and
mike at machine.domain.tld and then setup an email client to try and

Any suggestions?
