I've now thought it might work to just set the
"organization" value to
the users branch, which should at least allow a user to view the
addressbook, and select all the users in the branch, and then send an
email. The other option is to allow the user to "search" for the branch,
and then select all the users. None of these actually provide an ideal
solution from a usability point of view though.
So, does anyone even use ldap for a email address book (with any email
client)? How do you use that/make it work?
If you do not need to look up the
members of a group, it just works with
Thunderbird. Single Person addresses are just inetOrgPerson objects,
which is fine. Goups are groupOfNames objects with a additional self
created "groupaddon" object class, which adds
SUP top AUXILIARY
MAY ( mail $ displayName $ sn )
With that the group shows like a normal address book entry, you cannot
see the members.
We pre-created a additional address book "groups" in Thunderbird which
by filter does only show the groups, so that they can easily be found.
And we defined a special naming schema for group mail addresses as well.
Thanks again for your suggestions, I will look into sogo at some
but my current readings suggested it was not a stable platform to try to
use daily in a company environment... Even though carddav would work
nicely on the mobiles.
Why should SOGo not be production ready? I doubt that.
