Long time reader, first time poster.

After being assured by Kerio sales (and subsequently purchasing a 1000 user license) that Kerio Windows was fully compatible with LDAP running on OS X, we have hit a snag:

Basically, it won't properly communicate with our LDAP server.
We have checked with Apple, and as far as we can tell, we are running a properly configured LDAP master server - on OS X 10.3.9.

On the Kerio side of things, we have Kerio Mailserver 6.0.10 running on Windows Server 2000 Standard w/ all latest service packs and patches. It's a lean and mean installation on a dedicated server - no superflous windows features installed, just the basics and, of course, KMS.

Initially, when we followed the official kerio instructions and installed the extensions on the Mac side of things - checked for a proper install, too, by running the GREP command.

For the Directory Service username in Kerio, we initially input:

(on the Mac side of things, the administrator account has Open Directory administrative privileges)

The hostname has the properly-resolving DNS host name for our LDAP server (incidentally, we tried the raw ip too).

The search suffix is dc=ourdomain,dc=com

This initially yielded a LDAP server not available error when browsing users and groups. In the error log, we saw something listed about invalid credentials.

We played with various settings, but the only ones that worked were changing our uid to either root or admin. The error logs are clean, and everything appears to be working, except when we try to activate users in the directory service, we see nothing.
The polite and helpful Kerio support people were stumped and said they would research the issue for us. While we wait, however, I thought I'd post on here and see if anyone has any additional insight.

If you got this far, I appreciate your taking the time to read this long-winded post. Thank you for any help you may be able to provide :)
