Hi ladas,

if you rename an account, be aware of auth cache.

kolab-saslauthd caches all ldap queries in /var/lib/kolab/auth_cache.db
To delete the cached ldap queries you can connect to the cache db using
# sqlite3 /var/lib/kolab/auth_cache.db

and delete all cached entries with
# delete from entries;
