            Bug ID: 440750
           Summary: Caldav and Cardav Support For Mailfence Email Service
                    Not Working
           Product: kontact
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: contacts
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: kandelai at hotmail.com
  Target Milestone: ---

I was asked on KDE's sub-reddit to open a ticket, after the contributor there
tested my claim that Kontact/Kmail's caldav/cardav support did not work with
Mailfence.com's Cardav/Caldav. He came to the same conclusion, it does not
work. I think I also ran into this problem when I used Fastmail servers/service
as well a few years back. 

There is a separate bug report opened in 2018 that looks to be ignored, asking
for TLS certificate support for Caldav/Cardav. I note that here because
Mailfence uses TLS certificates in their IMAP settings. Not sure if the issues
are related, but worth noting. That bug report is here;

1. Used the DAv groupware resource
2. Entered user name and password
3. Hit the 'Add' Server Configuration, selected Cardav, and entered the remote
URL provided by Mailfence.com 
4. The Server Configuration box populates, so there is a connection, but it
never connects after hitting the OK button when performing a refresh in
Kontact/Kmail, etc. 

No Caldav/Cardav connection, kind of a time-out situation.
