I think there is a problem with the Telstra Australia CardDAV server, but I would like to confirm that and my understanding of what is wrong before tackling them.
I think I have read everything except the CardDAV standard, and searched everywhere. It is possible that not many people use CardDAV with Telstra Mail, which was newly implemented last year, so no one has found and fixed the issue.
I use Outlook 2010 as my primary Calendar and Contacts database.
I sync these to Telstra Mail using the “CalDav Synchonizer” plugin.
All my Calendar and Contacts information appears in the Telstra Mail web client.
I have a Samsung S5 mobile running Android 6.0.1.
I installed DAVdroid and set up both Calendar and Contacts accounts using the URL plus User and Password method. CalDAV works fine, showing Calendar items in the Samsung App, “S Planner” (although not in Outlook on the phone, but that is another issue).
When I create a CardDAV account I cannot get DAVdroid to find a Contacts collection and add it to the account. I have deleted accounts and recreated them, including just creating a CardDAV account. Refreshing the Address Book List does not add my “main” address book to the account.
The primary URL addresses Telstra supplies are;
· CalDAV server: calendar.telstra.com
· CardDAV server: contacts.telstra.com
From here: https://www.telstra.com.au/support/category/email/set-up/set-up-telstra-mail-on-your-device
I believe that this means that I need to set up two accounts, one for Calendar and one for Contacts, as the Collections are not both under the one URL.
A created a log by turning it on in settings and then simply running the “Refresh address book list” function. Nothing more, because without an address book listed under the account, nothing will sync anyway.
From the log file:
The principle URL for Contacts is expanded to;
(I have replaced my email address with XXXXXX here and in the attached log.)
However the addressbook-home-set is shown as;
So the “%” has been replaced with “%” in the URL.
Shortly after that in the log I get;
<D:status>HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found</D:status>
Is this why a Collection isn’t added to the account?
There doesn’t appear to be anything else wrong in the log. But I don’t know what to look for. There is no error message. The at.bitfire.davdroid:sync process is killed at the end.
Please comment on what my next steps should be. I thought installing and using DAVdroid would be easy!
Oops. Uploaded the correct files. Okay, your forum keeps reverting to the incorrect files uploaded earlier, even though I deleted them, changed their names, and re-uploaded.
I’ll post the files in a new message.
