This is incorrect and I don't believe you will be able to clearly
identify any "super-secret proprietary stuff" within Kolab. But as

To correct this: While Kontact is the primary client, it works fine
with Outlook and Thunderbird, too. In addition have the Horde
webmailer. Kolab has a pretty good if not the best Cross-OS client
coverage in the area of groupware servers.
