    Hi all,

    I have built a DavMail server (4.3.3) to connect to our company exchange server (2007 SP3).
    In general everything runs smoothly but I'm facing some small problems where I can't find a solution:

    1) Mail
    I use the Android 4.3 stock mail client and IMAP to get mails. Some mails are without any problems but around 80% is just the header and subject displayed and the body is empty.
    It happened alredy with older versions of Android and other phones.
    Today I tried POP3 and all mails are transferred correctly.
    Any idea to figure out why POP3 is working but IMAP not really?

    2) Calendar
    I use CalDav Sync app to get my calendar into the Android calendar.
    All appointments from my UK colleagues are one hour too late (I'm in CET time zone).
    Any suggestions?

    3) Contacts
    I use CardDav Sync app to transfer my company contacts to my phone.
    All mail adresses are in a format like "/o=Organisation/ou=Administrative Group/cn= Recipients/cn=Username" (LegacyExchangeDN values or so)
    Any suggestion to that?

    I appreciate any idea to test.

    Thanks a lot
    Axel

      where I can't find a solution:

      mails are without any problems but around 80% is just the header and

      Well, maybe: I fixed a regression on message headers handling over IMAP
      in commit 2152, you may retry with latest svn revision.

      2) Calendar
      I use CalDav Sync app to get my calendar into the Android calendar.
      All appointments from my UK colleagues are one hour too late (I'm in
      CET time zone).
      Any suggestions?

      I also noticed this, but haven't yet investigated to find the root cause
      of this issue. However, the same events appear at correct time in
      Lightning and OSX iCal => this may be a CaldavSync issue.

      3) Contacts
      I use CardDav Sync app to transfer my company contacts to my phone.
      All mail adresses are in a format like
      "/o=Organisation/ou=Administrative Group/cn= Recipients/cn=Username"
      (LegacyExchangeDN values or so)
      Any suggestion to that?

      Shouldn't happen: I tried to always get the right email address to avoid
      this issue that appeared during CardDav implementation. Are you in EWS
      or WebDav mode ? Can you provide a log file at mguessan@free.fr ?
