> Hi,
> the kolab administration webfrontend is nice for small installations,
> but as soon as you want to manager several hundred users or even more
> you have real usability problems.
> For example if you want to add a new member to the distribution list you
> have to input the email addresses, but with hundreds of users you have to
> lookup them first. A better way would be to provide a combobox with all
> users listed in it. However when your distribution list contains 12
> members, your browser needs to load 12x1000 combobox entries.
> In this case a native client application which provides the same
> functionality like the web frontend could help. So instead of providing
> comboboxes, the administrator could search in a ldap search dialog for the
> members he wants to add. Also people like native applications better
> than web applications, that's a fact ;)
> Over the last month I wrote such an application in Qt4/C++, so it is
> portable on every Unix and should also work on Windows when libopenldap
> is installed.
> The current limitations are:
>   - uses only CRYPT passwords (can be fixed by an additional dependency to QCA)
>   - no sieve based functionality yet (can be fixed by implementing a
>                                       sieve tool, which is planned for KDE4 anyway)
> Otherwise it should work fine, you can add/edit/delete
>   - users
>   - addressbook entries
>   - shared folders
>   - distribution lists
>   - administrators
>   - maintainers
> and configure the services of kolab.
> To check it out, just download the source from SVN via
>   svn co svn://wgess16.dyndns.org/kolabadmin/trunk kolabadmin
> cd into kolabadmin and execute
>   qmake
>   make
>   make install
> For comments, bug reports and suggestions you can send me a private
> mail.
> Ciao,
> Tobias
