There are numerous calendar and address book programs that support data synchronization with CalDAV and CardDAV. Unfortunately, we do not have the space to address all of these programs here.

However, this article will provide you with the information you need to ensure that most programs work properly. First check the instructions for your calendar or address book program. There you will find basic information on setting up CalDAV or CardDAV. In general, you will require the following access data to synchronize your calendar or your address book with your mailbox.org account.

  • User name: Your email address (for example, john.doe@mailbox.org)
  • Password: Your password
  • CalDAV address of the Calendar: https://dav.mailbox.org/caldav/XXX (XXX = folder name)

To find the server path for your calendar:

The complete path including the folder name is provided directly in the web interface of your mailbox.org Office. Open the calendar and click the folder icon in the column on the left-hand side. The Settings icon (gear) appears next to your calendar. Click the gear icon to access the settings for your calendar. In the settings, select ‘Properties’. This displays the complete path to your mailbox.org calendar so that you can import it in your own calendar program.

How to find the folder ID of your address book


Open mailbox.org in the browser of your choice and log into your account. Open the address book in the coloured top bar and mark the “address book” on the left which you want to connect.

Check the URL (address of the website) in the address field of your browser. It contains the folder ID that you need for correctly connecting to your address book tool.

Example:

If the address shown in the browser is: “https://office.mailbox.org/appsuite/#!!&app=io.ox/contacts&folder=32” then your folder ID would be 32

This means your address book URL would be https://dav.mailbox.org/carddav/32
