In 2.2, the DNs used in saslAuthzTo and saslAuthzFrom (note that this will
soon change into authzTo and authzFrom) default to exact; if you want
regex matching, you need to explicitly set the style to regex.  So your
rule would read

saslAuthzTo: dn.regex:uid=.*,ou=MailCustomers,dc=bestsolution,dc=at

Note that if you can give away with the "uid=" prefix, a rule like

saslAuthzTo: dn.onelevel:ou=MailCustomers,dc=bestsolution,dc=at

would save you a regcomp(), regexec().

This should be documented somewhere, e.g. in slapd.conf(5) or in the admin
guide.  I cannot find the reference right now, but I'm sure it is...
