Introduction

Zimbra 6.0 supports the CardDAV standard. Supported clients are Apple Address Book, Sunbird, and others. Connectivity is supported with or without a ZCS reverse proxy server.

Configuring CardDAV

Apple Address Book for OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

  1. Address Book -> Preferences -> Accounts
  2. Click the "+" to add a new account.
  3. Configure account details
    • Account type: CardDAV
    • User name: your_zcs_useraccount@domain.tld
    • Password: zcsUserAccountPassword
    • Server address: zcsserver.domain.tld:port
      Be sure to include the port specification when configuring Apple AB to ensure the account is setup correctly. Use 443 if your ZCS server supports the default HTTPS port. Otherwise, specify 80 if your server does not support HTTPS and listens for HTTP on the default port 80.
  4. Click Create.
    An error may display after configuring account details that states:
    Address Book couldn't discover the account settings for the CardDAV server "zcsserver.domain.tld:port". Make sure the user name and server address are correct, then click Create.
    If you receive this error, check the settings with your ZCS server administrator and try again.
  5. Close AB preferences.

Apple Address Book is now setup for CardDAV to your Zimbra server.

Apple iOS 4 for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

  1. Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Add Account... -> Other
  2. Add CardDAV Account
  3. Configure account details
    • Server: zcsserver.domain.tld:port
      Be sure to include the port specification when configuring CardDAV for iOS 4 to ensure the account is setup correctly. Use 443 if your ZCS server supports the default HTTPS port. Otherwise, specify 80 if your server does not support HTTPS and listens for HTTP on the default port 80.
    • User Name: your_zcs_useraccount@domain.tld
    • Password: zcsUserAccountPassword
    • Description: Zimbra
  4. Tap Next.
  5. Accept the SSL certificate warning if applicable.

iOS 4 is now setup for CardDAV to your Zimbra server. To use, navigate to the Contacts app and locate the group with the description provided during setup. Then, search for contacts.

Android

  2. Settings -> Accounts & sync
  3. Tap Add account
  4. Configure account details
    • Server name: zcsserver.domain.tld:port
      Be sure to include the port specification if you do not use standard ports (i.e. 80 for http and 443 for https)
    • Use SSL: leave checked if you want to connect using SSL, un-check otherwise
    • Username: your_zcs_useraccount@domain.tld
    • Password: zcsUserAccountPassword
  5. Tap Next
  6. Confirm SSL warning if you use a self signed certificate (and the fingerprint matches your certificate)
  7. Tap the address book you want to sync
  8. Enter account name (i.e. the description)
  9. Un-check sync from server to phone only if you want two-way-sync
