Hmm, I have groupware folders.  In kmail they have their own icons, so they 
are easily recognized as groupware folder.  In horde however, they just like 
a normal folder.  There is no content in the folder, is that what you mean 
with "If you have no groupware folders".

;) Indeed, but running a 'kolabconf -n' while horde has been in operation for 
some time, may ruine the settings that have made by the sysadmin.  After with 
a good wiki page, it is quite easy to configure horde, especially for an 
experienced admin.

Thanks a lot for your clear analysis for of the horde code.
