    z-push-gabsync creates useless address book entries from fax numbers

    Hello,

    some of our users have still fax numbers attached in the ActiveDirectory. z-push-gabsync creates additional address book entries with [email protected]_number that are only confusing the Outlook users and create undeliverable e-mails.
    I can not see any configuration option in gabsync.conf.php to avoid this. Is there a way ?

    Thanks

    ZCP 7.2.5/Z-Push 2.3.5 via repro

    Hi,

    I think what you are experiencing is default outlook behaviour. It generates these entries for fax gateways that send the email out as a fax (wow, that sounds really like 1990 ).

    Additional information can be found here:

    Not sure how to fix this on our side. You could ask the administrator to remove the fax numbers or to save them in another field.

    Cheers,
    Sebastian

    Yes, it looks like 1990 with fax numbers as e-mail addresses. But our fax gateway is still used - and needs the numbers in the LDAP field "fax".
    The first versions of z-push/KOE exported also zarafa-hidden users, the actual version filters this entries. I hoped there is an option to filter other things, like the fax number...

    Thanks

    The issue with the hidden entries was an issue we were aware about and fixed as soon we could.

    About the fax numbers: so yes, it's a feature not a bug.
    We could think about adding an option to simply remove (not set) the fax numbers. This could/should even be an option in the KOE plugin, so users could decide for themselves.

    Cheers,
    Sebastian

    I've created a ticket for this issue. Still undecided if/when this is going to be implemented.
