Hi.

For a long time I've been looking for a solution that actually works... and now I found one!
It's available here: http://davmail.sourceforge.net/
I'm using Thunderbird/Lightning as my client, but as long as the calendar supports caldav it should work.
Just thought I would share :)

Hope this will ease the frustration level for someone else

[edit] There's no ebuild, but if anyone is interested I could start working on one...[/edit]

I'd also be interested in an ebuild for this. Have you had a chance to start working on it?

(Un)fortunately my work situation has changed to be Exchange-free, so my need for davmail is no longer there. I doubt I'll find the time to work on an ebuild in the near future.

I made up the following ebuild. And I have checked that receiving/sending mail from thunderbird works for me on amd64 (tested for the last 10min :P). I haven't tested the calendar or ldap.
Code:
# Copyright 1999-2010 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: mail-client/davmail-3.8.2 $

EAPI=3
inherit eutils

if use x86; then
   MY_P="${P/$PN/$PN-linux-x86}-1385"
elif use amd64; then
   MY_P="${P/$PN/$PN-linux-x86_64}-1385"
fi
DESCRIPTION="POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/Carddav/LDAP Exchange Gateway"

   sed -i -e "s@BASE=.*@BASE=/opt/davmail@" davmail.sh
   dodir "/opt/$PN"
   cp -a * "${D}/opt/$PN"
   dodir "/opt/bin"
   dosym "/opt/$PN/davmail.sh" "/opt/bin/davmail.sh"
   echo "[Desktop Entry]

well done, works quite fine so far on my end.

However, portage seemed to have problems with the sourceforge SRC_URI here, so i had to change the upper part a little.

Code:

if use x86; then
   MY_P="${P/$PN/$PN-linux-x86}-1385"
    MY_ARCH="x86"
elif use amd64; then
   MY_P="${P/$PN/$PN-linux-x86_64}-1385"
    MY_ARCH="x86_64"
fi
DESCRIPTION="POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/Carddav/LDAP Exchange Gateway"
HOMEPAGE="http://davmail.sourceforge.net/"
SRC_URI="http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/${PN}/${PN}/${PV}/${PN}-linux-${MY_ARCH}-${PV}-1385.tgz"

That way it works here as well. I don't like having the revision number hardcoded in the SRC-URI though, but didn't come up with a better solution.

That is very strange. Maybe I need to inherit something? It didn't give any errors in mine since I had already downloaded the file (in order to create the ebuild) and placed it in distfiles.

I will check the mirror:// syntax and update the ebuild later. Thanks for the feedback!

Can you also let me know on what ARCH you tried this? I only have an amd64 machine, so the x86 ARCH is yet untested on my side.

Ok. I have looked it up and it seems what throws off that mirror:// syntax is the fact that the package has very peculiar versioning. If I make the package have version 3.8.2-1385 (first of all, maybe this is not even valid!) then it will still fail with the mirror syntax since the path to the file will have only 3.8.2 and only the final file has the 1385 number.

So, your solution seems the best right now. :) And by the way, a new version is out. Just updating the ebuild should work I guess ;) This new ebuild is as follows:
Code:
# Copyright 1999-2010 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: mail-client/davmail-3.8.3 $

EAPI=3
inherit eutils

MY_VER=1415
if use x86; then
   MY_P="${P/$PN/$PN-linux-x86}-${MY_VER}"
elif use amd64; then
   MY_P="${P/$PN/$PN-linux-x86_64}-${MY_VER}"
fi

}


Edit (04 Sep 2010): Updated ebuild to use mirror://sourceforge/. Thanks to gimpel :D

Just a note that I had to change the dependencies, otherwise it would pull in a JRE while I'm using a JDK.
Code:

DEPEND="virtual/jre:1.6"


Here's hoping that this works w/ Lightning and I finally have desktop notification of my calendar events!

You don't need a full jdk for this. simply a jre works. If you really want a jdk then modify the ebuild as follows:
Code:
|| ( virtual/jre:1.6 virtual/jdk:1.6 )
By the way, version 3.8.5 is available. You can modify teh ebuild name to 3.8.5 and MY_VER to 1480.

Moved from Desktop Environments to Unsupported Software as it's not in the Portage tree.

ppurka, thanks very much for posting your ebuild for DavMail. I updated it for 3.8.5 as you wrote, and it built without problems:

Code:
# Copyright 1999-2010 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: mail-client/davmail-3.8.5 $

EAPI=3
inherit eutils

MY_VER=1480
if use x86; then
   MY_P="${P/$PN/$PN-linux-x86}-${MY_VER}"
elif use amd64; then
   MY_P="${P/$PN/$PN-linux-x86_64}-${MY_VER}"
fi
DESCRIPTION="POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/Carddav/LDAP Exchange Gateway"
HOMEPAGE="http://davmail.sourceforge.net/"
SRC_URI="mirror://sourceforge/davmail/${MY_P}.tgz"

LICENSE="GPL-2"

KEYWORDS="-* ~amd64 ~x86"
IUSE=""

#DEPEND="dev-java/sun-jre-bin:1.6"
DEPEND="virtual/jre:1.6"

S="${WORKDIR}/${MY_P}"

src_install() {
   cd "${S}"
   # Fix the script BASE=
   sed -i -e "s@BASE=.*@BASE=/opt/davmail@" davmail.sh
   dodir "/opt/$PN"
   cp -a * "${D}/opt/$PN"
   dodir "/opt/bin"
   dosym "/opt/$PN/davmail.sh" "/opt/bin/davmail.sh"
   echo "[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application

Categories=Office;Email;
Exec=/opt/bin/davmail.sh" > "davmail.desktop"
   domenu davmail.desktop
}


I'm using it on my ~amd64 installation and it works well. This has been really helpful to me at work.

However, DavMail installs a single properties file (~/.davmail.properties), and a single script file (davmail.sh):

Code:
fitzcarraldo@meshedgedx ~ $ ls -la /opt/bin/davmail.sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Oct 18 10:56 /opt/bin/davmail.sh -> /opt/davmail/davmail.sh
fitzcarraldo@meshedgedx ~ $ cat /opt/davmail/davmail.sh
# Ubuntu setup instructions :
# install java :
# sudo apt-get install sun-java6-bin
# launch davmail :
BASE=/opt/davmail
for i in $BASE/lib/*; do export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$i; done
java -cp $BASE/davmail.jar:$CLASSPATH davmail.DavGateway $1
fitzcarraldo@meshedgedx ~ $


For people who need to access simultaneously two OWA accounts, it is possible to hack things and run two instances of DavMail simultaneously as follows:

1. Create /opt/bin/davmail-account1.sh containing:

Code:
BASE=/opt/davmail
for i in $BASE/lib/*; do export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$i; done
java -Duser.home=/home/fitzcarraldo/.davmail-account1 -cp $BASE/davmail.jar:$CLASSPATH davmail.DavGateway $1


2. Create /opt/bin/davmail-account2.sh containing:

Code:
BASE=/opt/davmail
for i in $BASE/lib/*; do export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$i; done
java -Duser.home=/home/fitzcarraldo/.davmail-account2 -cp $BASE/davmail.jar:$CLASSPATH davmail.DavGateway $1


3. Create two separate properties files as follows:

Code:
fitzcarraldo@meshedgedx /opt/bin $ cd
fitzcarraldo@meshedgedx ~ $ cp .davmail.properties ./.davmail-account1/
fitzcarraldo@meshedgedx ~ $ cp .davmail.properties ./.davmail-account2/


and change the values of davmail.popPort, davmail.imapPort, davmail.smtpPort, davmail.caldavPort, davmail.ldapPort, davmail.defaultDomain and davmail.url to be different between the two files.

4. Launch the two scripts:

Code:
fitzcarraldo@meshedgedx ~ $ /opt/bin/davmail-account1.sh
fitzcarraldo@meshedgedx ~ $ /opt/bin/davmail-account2.sh


5. Launch Thunderbird and add two new Webmail accounts, each with a POP mail server and SMTP server with the appropriate port values as specified in the two accounts' .davmail.properties files.

Fitzcarraldo thanks for that guide! I am sure it will be helpful to many others. It seems to be one of those "just works" kind of software (quite a rare breed) :)

Can you make the DEPEND as shown in this post? This way, people won't need to install a jre if they already have a jdk installed.

New ebuild

Updating the ebuild every time the version increased was getting annoying. So, I got rid of $MY_VER in the ebuild and instead put that information in the $PV. So, the ebuild is now named as davmail-3.x.x_pxxxx.ebuild, where each x denotes a number. Now, just renaming the ebuild with the correct version numbers should work.

Here is the ebuild for davmail-3.8.7_p1558. It uses the davmail.desktop and davmail.png from the sabayon overlay:
Code:
# Copyright 1999-2010 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: mail-client/davmail-3.8.7 $

EAPI=3
inherit eutils

use x86     && MY_P="${PN}-linux-x86-${PV/_p/-}"
use amd64 && MY_P="${PN}-linux-x86_64-${PV/_p/-}"

DESCRIPTION="POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/Carddav/LDAP Exchange Gateway"
HOMEPAGE="http://davmail.sourceforge.net/"
SRC_URI="mirror://sourceforge/davmail/${MY_P}.tgz"

LICENSE="GPL-2"
SLOT="0"
KEYWORDS="-* ~amd64 ~x86"
IUSE=""

DEPEND="|| ( virtual/jre:1.6 virtual/jdk:1.6 )"
RDEPEND="${DEPEND}"

S="${WORKDIR}/${MY_P}"

src_install() {
   cd "${S}"
   # Fix the script BASE=
   sed -i -e "s@BASE=.*@BASE=/opt/davmail@" davmail.sh

   dodir "/opt/$PN"
   cp -a * "${D}/opt/$PN"
   dodir "/opt/bin"
   dosym "/opt/$PN/davmail.sh" "/opt/bin/davmail.sh"

   domenu "${FILESDIR}/davmail.desktop"
   doicon "${FILESDIR}/davmail.png"
}

It works perfectly! Thank you very much, this software should be in the tree.

I know it's an old topic, but here is my question.

On DavMail's site, there are instructions as how to configure a Mozilla Thunderbird to work with it. But has anyone managed or at least tried to make it work with KDE's PIM, more specifically Akonadi resources?
I have lost half a day trying to make it work. Akonadi supports defining CalDAV, CardDAV and IMAP agents (I haven't tried the LDAP part, since I don't mind it yet), apparently they succeed in connecting to the DavMail gateway, but they do not supply any data! The only thing I get are some tray messages stating "unknown/incorrect collection name", both for card and calendar collections and for IMAP e-mails.

So, any ideas :?:
Thanks in advance.
