SyncKolab reads a selected Imap folder and synchronizes it with the local address book and calendar. It uses vCard/iCal/xml as format. Using shared-IMAP folders or a Kolab server (www.kolab.org
) you can achieve almost fully collaboration functionality (there is an autosync option).
It is a good idea to install lightning http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/lightning/index.html
in order to be able to use the full functionality (calendar and task sync) - but it works without it if you only need contact sync.
Professional support for SyncKolab is available from Kolab Systems AG (http://kolabsys.com
There are clients for android, ios, outlook and more available.
Make sure that you specify a different folder for each type of sync (one for calendar one for contacts and one for tasks) - mixing types is not a good idea!
