Well, mostly. Right now it's read only and won't be part of the "official" build until 3.0, which is apparently targeted sometime in 2008.

Works fairly well, but I'm still keeping an eye on Correo.

Peter,

It looks like the OS X Address Book is also an LDAP implementation, as this patch entails simply changing the query from Thunderbird AB to OS X AB.

What is wrong with this implementation? If the OS X Address Book is indeed a database, it is better to query it like a database rather than trying to manipulate its underlying data file. Ditto for the Thunderbird AB...
