...Thunderbird or me :-) Well, when I decided to use LDAP for my private
addresses I needed a way to feed my contacts to both bbdb and
Thunderbird. And - by the way - it was my first project with LDAP at
all. And yes, having all attributes still available with bbdb. If I had
used the above standard schema, Thunderbird would not have been happy -
but Claws would be now. I've to think about moving to a different LDAP
schema - maybe standard ones above. Currently it would be best if
Thunderbird would move to standard schemas :-).
