I've never understood how such a calendar can be useful. I use an online calendar, fwiw Yahoo's, but I have felt the need to have one embedded in a mail app. Are we talking usefulness, or feature-creep?

I would guess both, honestly.  A lot of people may be used to how Outlook/Entourage has an all-in-one approach, putting mail, contacts, calendars all in one program, so it's not too far out of reach to wish for that in a web client, esp. if you can't be on your own computer and need quick access to a calendar.

I admire your capacity to extend basic charity to confirmed Outlook users. I'm not sure they're the demographic any software project ought to establish as a primary test market.

If one is using roundcube, by definition one is sitting at a networked computer and ought to have access to any of the myriad online calendars out there. Ditto addressbooks. For addresses and phone numbers I also use Yahoo, but in a mail app all I really need and want in addressbook form are . . . email addresses.

Best,
