How to manually create a CardDAV account in Apple Address Book

Summary

How to manually create a CardDAV account for personal and public contacts in Apple Address Book.

Details

Personal Contacts

To create a CardDAV connection to your personal contacts you will need to go to Address Book->Preferences->Accounts. From there you add an account, select ‘CardDAV’ as the account type, enter in your username, password and your server address. See picture below for an example.



Public Contacts

To create a CardDAV connection to your public contacts you will need to go to Address Book->Preferences->Accounts. From there you add an account, select ‘CardDAV’ as the account type, enter in your username, password and your server address. However the server address needs to be a URL for the public folder. It will need to follow the format of:

[server address]/carddav/users/[domain]/.public/

EXAMPLE:

mail.server.com/carddav/users/domain.com/.public/

See picture below for an example.


 

Please note that a manual setup of the public folders will not work if Kerio Connect is installed on a 10.6.8 Mac Server. Every other version of the Mac software will allow your users to configure a manual public CardDAV account.
