I was wondering if anyone could help answer a few questions on Thunderbird working with Kerio 6.0.10.

1. How do I use LDAP? I managed to kind of get it working but it would not autofill in the latest version.

2. What do you do about the Trash folder? Is there anyway of making it use the Deleted Items? or can you change Kerio to use the Trash folder?

Any help much appreciated.

Jono.

Add this line to prefs.js:
user_pref("mail.server.server1.trash_folder_name", "Deleted Items");

Forgot to say I'm using Kerio on OS X 10.3 with Apple Open Directory for authentificaton. Can I use the schema that Kerio supply?

Jonbrain --
To set up LDAP to autofill with addresses from the Kerio Public Folders, Go to
1) Edit->Account Settings (This is on Linux, sorry, but Mac should be near the same)
2) Composition and Addressing
3) Click Edit Directories
4) Choose the one you have partially set-up and click edit (This should also, I think, work for setting up new, but here comes the important part - )
5) give it a name, make sure the hostname is correct (either IP or hostname), In Base DN use: fn=public,fn=ContactRoot , choose the proper port, and type in your email address in Bind DN.

It should work after you enter your email password! A good way to test is to click OK, then go back to the edit screen and click on the Offline tab and click download. It should ask you for your password, with your username filled in from the data in the BindDN field.
Enjoy!
Now... I am trying to convert Kerio's vCard format to LDIF files for import into OpenLDAP... I have a nifty perl script to do this, and it seems to work well. If you would like to use this once I finish modifying it for our setup, I can post it or a link to the original.
If you have any tips on this for me, they would be greatly appreciated! Also let me know if this was not very clear.
Thanks,
-Nick

Also forgot to mention - it seems that Kerio's LDAP server is not really an LDAP server :) . It stores its contacts in vCards (I assume for Outlook compat.) and it does not appear to have a visible schema or expandable schema.

What do I have to subsitute for "mail.server.server1" in the line you suggested? I added the line to prefs.js (located at Program Files/Mozilla Thunderbird/Default/Profiles), but had no luck.

I replaced mail.server with the name of the mail server, but also didn't have luck.

user_pref(" mail.server.[servernumberoftheimapaccount].trash_folder_name ", "Deleted Items);
It will not always be server1. For Example, for me it was server2.
It will never be your server's IP or hostname, as these server numbers are internal to Thunderbird.

Found the error I was making. There was another prefs.js on Documents & Settings\....\Profiles

Also found some further information on. http://kb.mozillazine.org/IMAP_Trash_folder

Now works fine.

Hi nickrooster

Sorry I still can't get this working. Should I be using the Kerio LDAP server on a different port or should I use Open Directory?

I got usernames coming back from the Open Directory but they didn't have any information e.g. email address etc

Sorry if I am being really stupid, your help is much appreciated.

Jono.

Ah! You are using OpenDirectory as well!
Which would you like to pull from?
For OpenDirectory, you will have to find out what the Base DN is.
If you were using only Kerio's integrated LDAP, my instructions would work.

You can find out your Base DN (I think) by going to /etc/openldap/slapd.conf (might be wrong, and these are linux-centric directions). And hunt around...

Make sure that your ports are correct, and you are using the correct hostname. Is this on the same box?

Oh, wait again! If you are getting something back, either your schema in OpenDirectory does not support the openLDAP style email addresses, and therefore Thunderbird can't see them, or you have no email addresses that match your query in OpenDir. (I think.) I am kinda new to LDAP so pardon my ignorance!

I set it up to use the Kerio LDAP server. Running Debug I could see the following happen on the server:

[25/May/2005 16:23:02][129826816] {ldaps} Searching subfolders in #public/*

[25/May/2005 16:30:29][129576960] {ldaps} LDAP server session close.

So it looks like it was doing something, but unfortunately no results where coming back.

The "User was not authenticated" line tells you what's up...
Wrong password or none provided where there should be.
Perhaps you told it to remember the incorrect password?
