Recently, my addressbook doesn't work when remote displaying though. 
When I type a name while remote displaying over DSL to home, evo never
shows any completions.  Go back to work, and completions work fine

Why might this be?  Is there a solution?

I store my address book on the LDAP server at work, and access it over
the same SSH tunnel as my IMAP mail and the work SMTP server. It works
well - and evo supports writing to an LDAP directory, so it's nice and
easy to use.

You'll want to make sure to include the 'evolutionperson.schema' in your
LDAP server schema set to get full functionality. With OpenLDAP, just
copy it to the 'schema' directory of your LDAP config directory
(typically /etc/ldap/schema or /etc/openldap/schema), and add an
appropriate include line to the top of slapd.conf.

LDAP is an interesting idea.  I don't think we have a production LDAP
server here though.  We do have production ph/qi.  I guess I might be
able to set up my own LDAP server, but that seems going a bit far.

How about the virtual folder issue?  Is there a way of sharing them
without remote displaying?
