AFAIR there is no local cache in Horde. Unlike the other Kolab clients, it 
only qualifies as an online client. You need a connection to the Horde 
server anyway, so it makes no sense to cache data on that server IMO.

For offline scenarios, you're running better with clients like Kontact or 
with OL plus a connector.
