Good point. In an MS architecture, are contacts in Exchange or in AD?
Anyone know the answer for Sun, Lotus, Novell?
The weakness of LDAP seems to be that it's only people who work at your
company. We need some other idea of contacts that includes anyone you
email or IM, roughly speaking.
I can't remember off the top of my head if Evolution supports modifying
LDAP data, but I think it does. The problem is (mostly) ACLs, it's
actually relatively straightforward to allow read-write access for
adding entries "beneath" a user's dn, but most people don't do this.
Given the proper configuration, LDAP is a perfectly reasonable place to
store both "enterprise-wide" and personal contact information.
