The main intention here would be to promote EDS and the apps written
around it. I'm sure that in future you can use Evolution mail and for
addressbook, you should be able to launch Contacts, or Evolution
Addressbook or any other thing. Where in still You can auto-complete
from your preferred Addressbooks and mail-to-task, accepting meetings

Tip: If you want to launch to open Addressbook in a new window now, middle click on Contacts in the switcher.
