Toltec™ Connector 2.0 Release Candidate


The Toltec" Connector is middleware that enables Microsoft Outlook to use an IMAP4 server while still using the functionality of the "Corporate or Workgroup" mode instead of "Internet Only" mode.

Version 2 of this product introduces support for the Kolab-XML format that allows other clients to inter operate with the Toltec" Connector. Currently KDE Kontact (Proko2 Branch) supports the new format and support is being added to the Horde web client.

IMAP4 Servers

Kolab 2

The new version of the Toltec" Connector was developed using the new Kolab 2 groupware server.

Information and documentation about the Kolab 2 server and the Email clients can be found on the Kolab WIKI.

Cyrus IMAP4

To use a Cyrus IMAP4 server you need to do the following:

  • Use Cyrus IMAP versions 2.2.x
  • Apply the ANNOTATEMORE patch, that adds supports for custom annotation. You can download the patch from here.
  • Compile Cyrus IMAP4 with Cyrus SASL, supporting CRAM-MD5 and/or PLAIN (with TLS support).
  • In the imapd.conf disable altnamespace.

  • Documentation

    The following documentation was obtained from the Kolab CVS:

    KDE Kolab client configuration ( Kontact ) and Kolab2 server configuration (1.66MB)

    Toltec Connector v2 Manual for Outlook 2003 ( 781B )

    These documents will be updated regularly.
