Delegation is not related to acl of imap mailboxes.

How does your /etc/roundcubemail/ look like?

There is a kolab_delegation_filter variable where you can define, which
ldap objects can used for delegations.

This should be set to:

    $config['kolab_delegation_filter'] =

but wasn't in earlier versions of kolab.

But for showing up the entries there is another configuration responsible:


For kolab addressbook you should change the base-dn:

-        'base_dn'                   => 'ou=People,%dc',
+        'base_dn'                   => '%dc',

Hope this helps.

Regards Jan
