Ingo, all,

I've been idling in this list for a whlie, and listened to this 
discussion. Recently, my attempts to make my netbook more used, along with 
KMail's dIMAP feature working since 4.4.0 (it previously did not) I've 
been thinking about moving from my local resources to exclusively Kolab 

All of these posts seem to imply that the data doesn't exist locally 
currenty, and does not tackle _how_ to import the data. How can one move 
data in existing resources to Kolab2?

I currently have:
Kaddressbook "KDE Addressbook Traditional" resource
Korganizer -- Multiple "iCal Calendar File" resources, one standard read 
write, and various online ones for LUGs and other event feeds, which I 
would like to stay cached.

My understanding is that Kolab2 uses XML, not vcard/ical, so I cannot 
simply copy the files to the imap server (i have shell access to my mail 

Also, how does Kolab play with MBOX based dovecot imap servers? I've been 
arguing with it to work sanely for a few days now, and have things 
working, but wonder how adding the groupware folders on will be handled.

Thanks and best,

Ryan Rix
