I am planning to setup a groupware server that's either Citadel or SOGo, which supports the GroupDAV, CardDAV, or SyncML protocols.

Is there a commandline e-mail client that supports syncing contacts via such protocols either out of the box or with a plugin/extension?

According to the documentation of both of the software products you linked to (here and here) both support storing directory information using LDAP. If you do not find a command line email client that supports the protocols that you mentioned, you could try using LDAP instead. Every decent email client supports LDAP.

OK, I will try to use LDAP, then. Thank you for the suggestion! – hpy Dec 17 '10 at 6:16
