I've been looking for some time for a way (hopefully KDE)
of keeping an address-book/contact list on a server,
so that it can be accessed, and edited, from a laptop.
Presently I'm running OpenLDAP on my server,
but this is not entirely satisfactory.
I use KMail on my laptop,
but the interface with the OpenLDAP server
is not very good (to put it mildly).
The features I would like are:
1. There should be a simple web interface
for accessing and editing the contact list on the server.
2. It should also be possible, and relatively easy,
to access and edit the contact list through KMail/KAddressBook.
3. There should be a simple interface to mobile phones
to allow contacts to be added to, and copied from, the phone.
4. The information stored with each contact
should be as flexible as possible;
there might or might not be an email address,
and there might or might not be a phone number.
I'd be interested to learn how KDE experts
set up their address book(s)?
Try SOGo. I use it for about one year and it fits my needs. A great web
interface (firefox, knoqi is not usable) and by default plugins for
thunderbird (up to 3.1 only - so sadly not usable with current fedora
thunderbird). With new kdepim2 you can use contacts, calendars and mails
from SOGo as well. kdepim1 can not use calendar and contacts from SOGo.
So with current fedora I use either the web interface for managing
contacts and calendars or thunderbird.
Iphone and ipod touch can use all the data by default (you have to
configure then seperately). For android there are plugins (CalCAV and
CardDAV) in the marked.
If you already use openLDAP you can continue using it with SOGo. I
recommend GOSa for administration of users in LDAP.
