No, it didn't help. Might it be that I need to edit any system files in 
/etc directory? When I set up dovecot on debian I had to edit 
/etc/pam.d/dovecot file accordingly to enable kerberos authentication 
for mail users in Active Directory. Someone suggested that I edit 
/etc/login.conf file in OpenBSD to enable kerberos for dovecot. But I've 
no idea of how these edits should look like.
