Hi Rob,
I could remove the "empty" from, but maybe other mailservers have 
problem with that, so I guess I will fill in some dummy email (like 
synckolab at no.tld).
I know about the problem with special characters, I will have to check 
what other clients use (like athaera, or kmail) and use the same - one 
issue is to keep all kolab compatible clients compatible to each other.

About the "copy all messages" issue:
The extension currently chekcs the date on the message with the date in 
the address book card, which one is newer - the other one will be 
replaced. I try to set the changed date when I create new cards, but I 
am really unsure if that works, so what happens is, that on the second 
sync synckolab things "whoa all cards in the address book are newer than 
on imap" and uploads all with corrected time.
