We had originally only wanted to use KDEPIM.  Tim did a fabulous job of
greatly enhancing the product to interoperate with Zimbra.  However, we
(he and I) had so many problems with little niggly, hard to diagnose
problems that we ultimately converted to the entire Trinity desktop.
That solved most of the problems for us.  I would imagine it will take
some concerted troubleshooting to figure out exactly which libraries are
different in what ways to cause the problems we were seeing when picking
and choosing. I know that doesn't really answer your question but
thought that I'd at least share our experience - John
