It's already some time ago, when I managed to get this activated. So, I'm trying to remember all steps I had to take to make it working. (Please excuse me if there's not everything 100% correct!)

There's a few steps you want to check:

1. Sieve should be installed, it's needed for a couple of "comfort" features.

2. /etc/sogo/sogo.conf, i.e. /usr/share/zentyal/stubs/mail/sogo.conf.mas:

 // Allow user to add other IMAP accounts that will be visible from the SOGo
    // Webmail interface.
    // Default is NO.
    SOGoMailAuxiliaryUserAccountsEnabled = YES;

3. Dovecot!!! - You need to enable Dovecot to support shared mailboxes. The keyword here is Namespace and ACL! (/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf, i.e. /usr/share/zentyal/stubs/mail/dovecot.conf.mas)

namespace {
    type = shared
    separator = /
    prefix = Shared/%%u/
    location = maildir:%%Lh/Maildir/:INDEX=%%Lh/Maildir/Shared/%%u
    # this namespace should handle its own subscriptions or not.
    subscriptions = no
    list = children

# ACL and share folder
    acl = vfile
    acl_shared_dict = proxy::acl
    acl_defaults_from_inbox = yes

protocol imap {
    mail_plugins = $mail_plugins imap_quota imap_acl
    imap_client_workarounds = tb-extra-mailbox-sep

    # Maximum number of IMAP connections allowed for a user from each IP address.
    # NOTE: The username is compared case-sensitively.
    # Default is 10.
    # Increase it to avoid issue like below:
    # "Maximum number of concurrent IMAP connections exceeded"
    mail_max_userip_connections = 30

You may want to look here: to get some better understanding.

Let me know if it works!  :)

Dovecot and SOGo have some awesome configuring tools that enables us to set our configuration without hardcoding parameters:
And also:
Code: [Select]

  -v, --verbose enable verbose mode
  -h, --help display this help information

  argument1, ... arguments passed to the specified command

  Available commands:
backup              -- backup user folders
checkup             -- checkup integrity of user(s) data)
cleanup             -- cleanup deleted elements of user(s)
