Hi Christian,

So does it work like this, when I sync my device with SOGo? IOW, "phone A5"
exists on the device but not in SOGo?

[device] ---> [SOGo]
- entry A - entry A
- phone A1 - phone A1
- phone A2 - phone A2
- phone A3 - phone A3
- phone A4 - phone A4
- phone A5

And if I make any changes in SOGo to "entry A" and sync the other way, I'd
that "phone A5" on the device is actually deleted?

I understand that the current limitations are due to TB. But, FWIW, if a
version without these limitations existed, I'd seriously consider buying it.

Yes, I searched the web a bit for that. But my first impression is that
there is rather slow.

Understood. I guess I'll check how many of the above entries I actually have,
generally SOGo made a solid first impression. :-)

Thanks again.
