I have a very similar setup. However I use IMAP only for mail access -
serve addresses and calendar. If you are serving them, your experience
will be different to mine.
Thanks very much for your response.
I probably did not explain my setup clearly.
I collect email on my desktop from 3 public mail servers (such as gmail).
I run dovecot on the desktop,
which allows me to read the email (with kmail) on my laptop.
So I suppose I am running a mail server in some sense on my desktop.
But I don't accept email on the desktop from outside my system,
which is what I would normally think of as characterising a mail server.

Assuming that your addressbook is akonadi-controlled, simply Add a Group.
I'm not sure how one tells if KAddressBook is "akonadi-controlled".
In any case, File=>New=>New Group in KAddressBook is greyed out.
(I don't see Add a Group as an option anywhere.)
I notice I don't have the KAddressBook handbook or manual on my system,
though I have yum-installed both kdepim and kdepim-devel .
(As I mentioned, my version of kdepim is 4.4.4-1 .)
