    [CardDav] An unusual finding, any ideas on if this is known or can be fixed?

    First let me say that we are just getting into synching calendars and contacts with iPhone
    so please bear with me if I leave something out that might be helpful, but I need to get a discussion
    going about our findings. First of all, we are not leveraging zXmobile at the moment but instead are relying
    on CalDav to synch contacts and calendars. This seems to work well with iPhone but we have uncovered
    an issue where if you create a new contact using a PC it does not appear under the iPhones contacts except when:

    1) The new contact was created by 'emailing the contact'.
    2) The contact is moved from the default 'contacts' folder into the 'emailed contacts' folder.

    In fact a new contact becomes visible in the iPhone as long as it is NOT in the default 'Contacts' folder.

    Perhaps more odd, if I edit a contact in the default 'Contacts' folder the changes ARE propagated to the iPhone.

    Any ideas on why this is? I can probably create a workaround but it seems like a bug somewhere.

    Our zimbra version is 7.1.2

    Hello tgx,
    welcome to the forums!

    I moved your post to the "Zimbra HowTo" section as it is not related with ZeXtras Mobile.

    Thus said, a couple of questions:

    - What iOS version are you running?
    - When you speak about "creating a new contact on a PC" do you mean through the Zimbra Web Client or through a client such as iOS' Mail.app?
    - When setting up the CardDav account did you enter the server URL as "server.yourdomain.com/dav/user@domain/" or did you set up a specific folder?

    Have a nice day,
    Cine
