same Problem with

Errorlog in Thunderbird tells: : server does not support RFC 5746, see CVE-2009-3555

If you read and, it becomes clear, that the HTTPS-Connection cannot be established via TLS because of incompatibility.

Please update https code in Sogo connector and it should work.

Hello Ludovic,

thanks. Updated to nightly build, error message is gone now.

Sogo tells now: "SOGO: iCloud No changes" :-)

Adressbook keeps empty.

Other hint - If you look into "Configuration.plist" of Apple Adressbook you find following URL:

If you copy this URL to the config dialog, Sogo adds an slash "/" to the end instead of using the VCF itself. It looks like:

No success, too. :-(

TB 24.6.0
Sogo 24.0.5 (nightly sogo-connector-24.0.5-f0b78a52c2.xpi)

Connector expects an address book URL to synchronize with.
is NOT the URL of an address book!
This is the URL of one address card.

Address books in CardDAV are always directories, so adding a / after it is common.

TB 31.0.5
Sogo Connector 31.0.1

Follwing URL:

Sogo tells now: "SOGO: iCloud No changes" and the Adressbook keeps empty.
