7.5 Personal and shared address books

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.

SquirrelMail supports own flat file format, database supported by PHP Pear DB libraries
and LDAP.
LDAP address books are readonly and listing of addresses is available only when users
search for address.

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.

How to use shared file based address book in SquirrelMail.
1. Get SquirrelMail 1.4.4, 1.4.5cvs, 1.5.1cvs or later.
2. If you want to use a writable address book in 1.4.4, get a patch that fixes the address
book form.
3. Create address book file. SquirrelMail address book uses CSV format with | symbol as
first field is nickname second field - name third field - surname forth field - email fifth field -
additional information

4. If you want writable address book, file must be writable by webserver user.
5. After you have created address book file, go to SquirrelMail configuration utility, select
6. Address Books option and configure address book in 3. Global file address book.
