SquirrelMail supports multiple address book backends. Backends can be configured to provide address books that store entries visible to one user or to group of users or to all users that use same SquirrelMail installation.
Global address book is address book that can be shared between users. Global address
books can be configured in SquirrelMail since 1.4.4 version. Before than admin had to
modify functions/addressbook.php file. There is a typo in 1.4.4 code and if you want to
have writeable global address books, you should apply patch or use newer SquirrelMail
version. Seehttp://squ ir rel ma il.or g/wi ki/Kn o wn Bu g s
If admin wants to use different backend for address book storage (IMSP, personal LDAP
address books, sticky notes attached to server), SquirrelMail 1.4.5 and 1.5.1 provide
hooks that allow plugins to attach their own functions during address book initiation and
admin needs only a plugin that can interact with used data storage system. Older
SquirrelMail versions need two extra hooks in functions/addressbook.php. Current
backend implementation is limited to standard SquirrelMail address book format.
