As a mail client (IMAP or POP3) it works perfectly, however if you wish to use 
it as a POP3 client you must remember to enable Kolab's POP3 service in the 
admin interface, as it is disabled by default.

Unfortunately the builds of Kontact that shipped with KDE 3.2.X (one of which 
I assume Mandrake 10 comes with) has the groupware, i.e. Kolab integration, 
functionality disabled. If you wish to use Kontact's groupware features 
together with Kolab you're going to have to download, compile and install 
Kontact from KDE CVS, as the HEAD branch of Kontact has all the groupware 
features enabled.

Alternatively you can wait for KDE 3.3 which, as far as I understand, will 
include a stable release of Kontact that includes all the Kolab groupware 
integration work.
