Hi everybody,

I´m new to Evolution, but till now I´m really happy with it ;)
A reason for that is the write support for LDAP adressbooks(great job).

I use an OpenLDAP Server (2.4.x) for storing my adresses. The scheme
used is the evolutionPerson.scheme that comes with evolution. Everything
fine so far, but the fields for the messenger information is greyed out.

With a local adressbook they are available. I browsed through the
evolutionPerson.scheme and there is no entry for the messenger fields.
Are those fields just missing in the scheme and already adressed in the
code of evolution (so I could simply add the missing fields to the
scheme) or is there no support for that stuff in the LDAP adressbook?

it seems both schema change and a code change would be needed to have
this working, as with schema you can make the field available, but there
will be no mapping between schema field and EContact field for it in the
code, thus it'll not be saved. I guess so from a really quick
walk-through the ldap addressbook backend code.
