Hello all,

I am looking for an primarily open source, free wayto have a shared address book BUT with support of contact pictures and access control to those contacts? I was thinking of OpenLDAP and Thundebird (+ what add-ons?). Or please recommend a commercial product.

I don't know exact Thunderbird plugins but any LDAP product will do what You want if client will understand the schema - so look at client used in your organization, see what capabilities it have and what is required (schema definition for it to understand) then look for LDAP server in which You can  get this.

Thunderbird has LDAP address book support built-in - I used it with AD, it should work wit OpenLDAP as well. However it is missing photo thumbnails integration - I don't know any plug in for TB which gets photos from LDAP from first hand experience, this one (I just found it) has a LDAP photo synchronization on a feature list: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/thunderbird/addon/58034/
