How to use public adressbook in emails

Hi,
we have a public folder with lots of adresses in it - but we havent found a way yet to get adresses from this folder when sending emails. We can see the GAB and the “Contacts” folder of the indiviual user as in the shot:
![alt text](0_1526590872586_2018-05-17 22_59_10-Kopano WebApp.png image url)
but is there a way to add a public adress folder to the list in the upper right corner ?

Thanks a lot,
Michael

Hi @mtroitzsch ,

this behavior can be influenced by the following setting: https://documentation.kopano.io/webapp_admin_manual/config.html#disable-public-contacts

Hi,
many thanks. That was a great first step. Now I can select the public address book from the list shown above when I click the “To:” button. Is there also a way to add a public address book to a search list so that amn address is automatically searched from there when I enter the name (and/or click the Check Name (Namen überprüfen) button) ?
Thanks,
Michael

That I cannot say. I’ll leave that to the webapp guys.

You can resolve a user from the public address book, but not via check names.
If you have a user with the same name in your local address book, that user will be resolved.
Same for the GAB and local contacts. So we check GAB -> Local -> Public

Changing this has a negative impact on the performance

But if you have unique names you won’t run into this issue
