Hi Brian,

thanks for your reply. If phpGW needs to maintain its own addressbook, because 
there is too many
information that has to be stored, that's o.k for me. You're right, the 
database IMHO is needed,
because LDAP is only an optional feature. That's why some information, mainly 
for authentication,
can be redirected to LDAP but the rest stays with the database. The limitations 
of the
contact standard shouldn't be a problem. There already exists a LDAP-schema for 
phpGW that can be
extended to store further phpGW information.

What I am looking for, is the addressbook to access two different sources of 
information. One with
read-only access to existing user-profiles for email-Adresses, etc that 
shouldn't be changed by
phpGW. Another with read/write access for (external) contacts like customers, 
partners, etc. that
should be managed by phpGW.

If there's no easy way, we've to think about redesigning parts of our LDAP-tree.
