KNotes can use multiple resources for loading and storing
its contacts. After starting KNotes for the first time you will have
a default resource installed that saves all notes in a file
you can add more resources by using the Resource Configuration
dialog, which is available in
the System Settings under Personal Information->
Load the configuration module you want to add your resource(s) to by selecting it from the drop down box at the top of the Resources section. The module for configuring KNotes's resources is Notes.
Launch the Resource Configuration dialog by pushing the button. Choose the resource you want to add to your Notes module and click OK to confirm your choice.
- Notes in Local File
All notes will be stored in a local file
- IMAP Server via KMail
This resource stores notes as messages on an IMAP server. KMail is used to access the IMAP server, therefore, if you use this type of resource, KMail will open whenever you access the address book, if it (or Kontact) are not already running.
- Notes on Scalix Server via KMail
To be written
- eGroupware Server (via XML-RPC)
To be written
After selecting the type of resource another dialog appears where you can configure the resource-specific settings.
KNotes needs a standard resource, where all contacts should be saved if no other resource is specified; for this reason, after starting KNotes the first time, there is already a resource available. If you want to use another resource as the standard resource, use the button to select it. You must have both read and write access to the new standard resource, otherwise you will not be able to select it.
