Dear Mickaël,

thanks for doing a really good job on developing DavMail. Actually, it works pretty well on my iPhone / iPad connecting to Exchange 2010.
What I am still missing is a way to access public folder contacts using a CardDAV account or any other way it would work on the iOS.

Maybe you have an idea?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Dominikus

  • Did you try to set the path to
    /principals/public/path/to/contacts

    ?

    of course that works using carddav for a specific account. what i need is to access a public folder with my account where i am allowed to work with, lets say something like

    public folders root / CRM / customers

    where customers is the contacts folder that should be accessed by CardDav protocol. Actually I can access it by CalDav but that doesnt give me contacts on the phone like expected.

    Best regards

     
  • Ok, according to the screenshots there is no way to specify principal path (this field is available in Caldav account settings). I guess you will have to submit a RFE to Apple...

    Hi there,

    I guess this might be because the URL is mapped from

    localhost:port/public/path/to/contacts
    to
    exchangeserver.com:port/exchange/public/path/to/contacts

    but it should be mapped to
    exchangeserver.com:port/public/path/to/contacts
    (note: the 'exchange' part in the folder structure is missing)

    At least this is how it works if I type the URL into a browser.

    So, I would think this is something which could/should be addressed with DavMail?

    Best regards

    ... well, I think I have been too fast with my previous comment...:

    /principals/public/path/to/contacts

    works fine without any further changes.
    So just to be particular: If you want to access _public contacts_ at Exchange2003 via DavMail and the MacOS Contacts application:

    a) create a new CardDAV account
    b) credentials (login/password) as required
    c) Server address should be of format "localhost:port/principals/public/path/to/contacts"
    d) click 'Create'

    If you want to change the URL after the account was created, you have to remove and recreate the account within the MacOS Contacts application.

    Hope this information is helpful for other users, working with a similar setup...

    Thanks & keep up with this great peace of Software

     
  • Thanks for your feedback, can you please confirm that this is working on OSX, not on iOS ?

    ... just to confirm: I am using the Contacts app on Mac OS 10.8.3;
