It might still work though. Kolab is using IMAP folders for addressbook and 
calendar folders, basically storing the contact/calendar data as attachments 
in mails.

I don't know the exact requirements though, I think the IMAP server needs to 
support IMAP folder attributes so the folder can be marked as being a 
container of "not actually email".

What you could try to do is to stop all KDEPIM apps and then run 
I think (haven't tried this myself) this will create addressbook/calendar 
folders on the specified IMAP server and setup the config needed to access 
inside Kontact.

People on KDE's kdepim-users mailinglist might have such setups and be able to 
give you better hints than I am.
