On my side, my goal is to share with Outlook multiples adress books.
One is the personnal one, so the Outlook user is syncing it through
Funambol, and it works fine.
But i'd like to sync a second address book with sogo.

Actually, i can only figure how to sync personal one. Not a custom one,
created side by side.

Yes i would have similar issues on Android or any syncML capable device:
generally, i can only sync sogo-card.

I ran into theses questions:
- can i choose the address book (sogo side) i want to share through
syncML with modifications of sogo-card.xml in funambol server ?
- can i share multiples calendars, first on server side, then on client
side (it seems funambol outllok client is only syncing one. Does anyone
know a tool able to sync more than one ?)

That would really hits the rock because i have constraint in deploying
native outlook support: need to stay on Dovecot for mbox support - and
configure the v2.0 to have it working with my infrastructure is somehow
complex, already some ldap directory i 'll need to move (and that's not
a little thing due to many clients programs that are using it), the fact
i should handle 2 accounts (samba 4 + ldap) is my last problem.

Perhaps i should open a new thread for theses questions.
