I had read about this and not happy with the connector stuff.
I'm not stuck with any client, so I have all options open. I just need a good 
one for Linux and a good one for Windows. Best is an open source solution to 
me, otherwise I will only use the calendar via the web interface and hope for 
a solution in the near future (or write something myself, although I think 
I'll have no time for that with having two jobs already).

Didn't realise that. Thanks again !

I'm going to spend the rest of this evening reading more about Horde and 
perhaps even try it this evening.
