Global Address Book – Adds an SQL based global address book

you can try it, but you need upgrade the roundcube to 0.3.1,

maybe you can use iredmail 0.6 beta1 for test. it  ship roundcube0.31.

Does it work only for roundcube webmail? How about for email app like outlook and thunderbird?
BTW, when version 6 will be anounce stable?

Just notice there is a centralize address book for LDAP backend, hope there will be available for MySQL too...

the address book is only for webmail.

if you want to use address book in outlook and thunderbird, you have to use ldap back end, mysql seem is impossible.

version 6 stable , need you help us test it and give the feedback.

The web mail is imap client to email system.
Outlook and alike can be configured as imap clients.

What is needed in this setup is the sharing capability of imap folders.
And the way to manage that.
Then you can have a shared address book, for clients using imap protocols, web or on the system, shoould not make a difference.

I never needed such thing so cannot help more.

However all other collaboration suites, including Exchange, do have that capability.

So rather then reinventing wheels, see how other guys did it.
Open source projects, most of them use similar technoologies in the background, like imap and ldap protocols, to manage things that you want to have, so that is a good similarity right away.
