I've decided to not use the whole stack of software (Zimbra seems to work
better for me), but I thought I'd pass this along to anyone who is
interested - it looks like it might work with a registry change...

Hello Daniel,

Make sure you are using Outlook Connector 4.2.  We are investigating why
our Outlook Connector 4.2 isn't properly detecting Kolab 3 servers, but you
can override Outlook Connector 4.2 by forcing to be in Kolab 3 mode by
making a change in the registry.

Run regedit.exe and go to the following path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Bynari, Inc\Insight Connector

Add a registry value type "DWORD (32-bit) Value" name "KolabVersion".
 Enter a value "3" (without the double-quotes for both the name and value).

Restart Outlook.
