I don't know which features Kolab's vacation interface provide, but  
what do you expect from such an interface? The requirements are pretty  
limited. See this screenshot for an idea what Ingo provide for  
vacation messages:

I should mention that Ingo is using sieve's vacation extension, not

You can create folders in IMP from Ingo, store contacts in Turba from

IMP in Kronolith etc.

Passwd, our application for changing passwords has a Kolab driver. The  
other stuff can not be done from Horde at the moment. But porting such  
an interface to integrate into Horde should be easy.
