Right - when adding a domain, /etc/kolab/kolab.conf must be updated to 
include, at the very least:

base_dn = dc=newdomain,dc=org

Also, you may want to log off and back in to the web admin, at which 
point you'll find a domain selector including the primary domain and the 
new domain in the top right corner.

First select the domain to operate against there, than add a user to 
the new domain.

Hope this helps,
