unable to configure public-folder based Contactsfolder as addressbook in Outlook
|Target version:||Scalix 12.6|
Scalix Connect 126.96.36.19947, Outlook 2013, Server 188.8.131.5246.
Steps to reproduce:
- use Outlook to create a "Folder containing Contact Items" in the Public Folders
- right-click on the Folder
- the "Properties" Window is missing the tab "Outlook Address Book"
- this worked in Scalix with earlier versions
- still works in Exchange (verified on O365) and other Competitors

As per my observation exchange shows the "Outlook Address Book" tab in Public Folder (right click to contact). but not for scalix.
It should be shown also for scalix
Other way we can create contact folder in Public Folder. see the attached SOP to Configure public-folder based Contacts folder in Outlook.

Are you sure that Outlook higher 2007 + Exchange server is letting you to add public folder with contacts as Address Book.
I have found old bug / feature request and in conversation there was mentioned that MS OU does not let do t.
Maybe they allowed to do such thing in OU 2007 and then dropped this feature (maybe it was experimental).
To start working on it I would need some proofs that MS OU + Exchange server is allowing to add Public Contact folder as Address Book.
Currently we does not have test Exchange server so please provide confirmation for this if you have Exchange server.
Please note that Office365 is different thing. Mapi protocol is outdated and Office365 based on new protocol (EWS or ..)
