Problem setting owner

Hi list!

I have a Dovecot 2.2.9 installed from Ubuntu-Repository.
It uses LDAP to authenticate against an Active Directory controller.

The authentication works, but it tries always to use the UID of the user for
the mailbox...
I already added:

	mail_uid = 1005
	mail_gid = 8

in 10-mail.conf and:

user_attrs = \
  =user=exim, \
  =uid=1005, \
  =gid=8, \
  =quota_rule=*:bytes=%{ldap:quotaBytes}, \
  =home=/home/mailboxes/%{ldap:sAMAccountName}/Maildir, \

in the dovecot-ldap.conf.ext, but it seems to ignore them...

Could someone help me?
