That's exactly what Michael says.
Horde supports EAS and it's great! Ios also handles this protocol 
perfectly so everything is perfect.
But ... Apple Mail app does not support EAS but EWS. But not Horde.
So yes there are other solutions but it is not as simple and 
integrated. For example, I have in my Horde configuration several 
address books that I expose through Carddav. Except that the Contacts 
application only handles a single Carddav address book ... So I have 
created as many address book accounts to mitigate this limitation but 
this is not a good solution ... Other Big problem is the IMAP. In my 
company, I am behind a Firewall and it is impossible for me to 
connect. Thanks to EWS, everything would be integrated and would form 
a coherent whole.

I suspect that the work effort has to be huge, hence my suggestion of 
crowdfunding ...

I have been using Horde for over 10 years and I do not expect to 
change it. You really do a good job, you have to say it and say it 
again!
But of course it's easier to ask you to do miracles than Apple ... 
You're more flexible than them.

I hope that one day it will be possible for "easy to use" solutions 
like EWS to be used.

Thanks for your listening, it's already a beginning :)

While this would allow some clients that don't support EAS, like Apple 
Mail, to connect to Horde as if it were an Exchange server, I really 
don't feel like it's worth the effort.

This would be a huge undertaking. Especially when there are other ways 
to connect from these same clients.

What would that get us that the current Horde API doesn't provide already?

Hi all,

can we dream, one day, to have the feature EWS.

It would be very nice.

Maybe with a crowdfunding...

ActiveSync support is really useful and I think the EWS would also be useful

Thanks

Ryu
