PS, the context is to try and replace MS Outlook with Mozilla
Thunderbird. With email in IMAP4, that works well. I can share the
calendar from thunderbird to iphones/android phones with
. Now I'm just trying to resolve the "shared
contacts" issue, which is currently solved by copying (at login) a pst
file from a share to the local users profile, and having that configured
to open in outlook (add pst data file). I'd prefer to replace all that
with ldap, since thunderbird supports ldap for an addressbook, and it
would then update immediately (instead of after next login). Also, long
term it would be useful to use ldap for other web based login
authentication, squid proxy auth, and/or even windows authentication,
but, one step/problem at a time.
Think about using something like SOGo instead of the mentioned calendar
server. As mentioned before Thunderbird and groups in LDAP is a mess.
I'm not sure right now, if SOGo can display LDAP groups as address book
groups better, but you can use openldap as authentication source and
manage the address groups in the shareable CardDAV address books.
Maybe this works with calendarsever as well. But the Thunderbird
integration of SOGo is the best I've seen so far. You may check it out.
