People have done that before. Please check the mailing list archive. There are 
even companies offering direkt support for such a szenario.

Simply google for "kolab Active Directory" and get results like


I am not really familiar with any of these solutions but I have in general

In general if you are only interested in the authentification towards MS AD 
simply make sure Kolab sasl is pointed to Active Directory to do
