Ticket #1332930 (Feature Requests)

You right with LDAP. There's LDAP access implemented but only for
searching and copying to the local address book. I think we should not
only rely on LDAP only because not everybody has set up an LDAP server
to access it. A local address book should be part of the package and
used by default. Maybe we could add some more abstraction that would let
us replace the local address book with an existing LDAP account just by
configuration.
Nevertheless we need to implement a user interface for address
management that complies the expectations of a RoundCube user.

Unfortunately I don't have access to an LDAP directory which makes it
impossible for me work on that or even to make some concrete suggestions.
