Hi Timo

Here is postfix's log after ldap is restarted:

Nov  7 11:30:45 padme postfix/smtpd[30935]: TLS connection established from 
unknown[x.x.x.x]: TLSv1 with cipher DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA (256/256 bits)
Nov  7 11:30:56 padme postfix/smtpd[30935]: warning: unknown[x.x.x.x]: SASL 
PLAIN authentication failed: Connection lost to authentication server
Nov  7 11:30:56 padme postfix/smtpd[30935]: lost connection after AUTH from 
Nov  7 11:30:56 padme postfix/smtpd[30935]: disconnect from unknown[x.x.x.x]

Here is the log from kmail:

Sending failed:
Your SMTP server does not support PLAIN.
Choose a different authentication method.
The server responded: "5.7.0 Error: authentication failed: Connection lost to 
authentication server"
The message will stay in the 'outbox' folder until you either fix the problem 
(e.g. a broken address) or remove the message from the 'outbox' folder.

Restarting dovecot after restarting ldap solves this problem. (Postfix does 
not need to be restarted)
