If I look under Help in the webmail interface, I can find instructions for setting up CardDav and CalDav sync with my local machine’s Address Book and Calendar. Does this not work now? It would be nice if it was so simple!
I have been a Dreamhost customer for more than 10 years and the two things I have always wanted them to add in addtion to webhosting and IMAP email, are CalDAV and CardDAV servers. It just seems a natural set of services to pay for–and control–rather than getting ‘free’ from companies that will use my data.
