Davical service, and it works fine. I use the sogo extension for
contact syncing.

The only issue I've had is that occasionally thunderbirds calendar
occasionally switches to readonly mode if a sync doesn't work properly -
which becomes noticeable when dismissing an reminder and it pops up 20
minutes later.

I'm planning to migrate over to my own mail servers running cyrus imap
which has builtin webdav/caldav/carddav since version 3.
