We’re happy to announce that our new CalDAV service is now in open beta testing.
With CalDAV you can store your calendars on Runbox’ servers using calendar apps on your computer or smart phone. This is the first step towards a full-fledged Runbox Calendar service, as we are planning to develop an integrated web interface as well.
Please remember that this is a beta phase and that the service might be less consistent than our standard services. We therefore recommend that you back up your calendar data before and while testing it.
Setting up Runbox CalDAV
To try Runbox CalDAV in your Calendar client, just set up a new account with your Runbox username and password and https://dav.runbox.com/ as Server Address.
Note: If you are using your own domain with Runbox, the correct username format is firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Apple Calendar users: Setup should be straight forward after selecting Add Account… > Add CalDAV Account… from the menu.
- Outlook users: To extend Outlook with CalDAV functionality you can try the Outlook CalDav Synchronizer plugin.
- Thunderbird users: For Thunderbird Lightning setup instructions, please see this comment.
PS: In case you are wondering what CalDAV stands for it’s Calendar Distributed Authoring and Versioning, and it’s the established standard for storing and accessing calendar information on the Internet.
