Hi,
my mailboxes are hosted on cPanel server (with Dovecot as IMAP/POP3 server).
MUA are basically Microsoft Outlook 2010.
I am looking for some solution to give users opportunity to share address book.

Horde webmail (already present in cPanel environment) do this.
I need to achieve same function with Outlook.
I tried this:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/outlookcaldavsynchronizer/

but I am force to configure and "contact", "calendar" or "task" special folder, and Dovecot doesn't provides this kind of folder.
Anyway, cPanel acts as CalDav/CardDav server, but I don't know how to configure it in Microsoft Outlook

Thank you

You are not using a compliant/compliant setup to work with outlook.
 Look at the outlook requirement to facilitate shared resources. Pop3/IMAP are two protocols to access messages, there is no facility there to handle address book information.

Often, your setup has to have exchange server setup.
Does your setup include an LDAP SERVER for centrally managed users?

Hi Arnold,

Thank you
