Configure CardDAV and CalDAV for eM Client

This article applies to recent versions of SmarterMail Enterprise. View articles for SmarterMail 16.x and earlier.
CardDAV and CalDAV are extensions of the WebDAV protocol and can be used to sync your SmarterMail contacts and calendar with eM Client. 
Follow these steps to configure CardDAV and CalDAV in eM Client:
  1. Within eM Client go to the Tools menu and click Accounts then New account...
  2. Expand the Calendar section, choose CalDAV then Next.
  3. Complete the fields for your server information. NOTE: For the 'Account address URL' field, enter your full SmarterMail URL, e.g., For the 'User name' field, be sure to enter your full SmarterMail email address.
  4. Make any necessary modifications to the account's display name to be used within eM Client and click Next.
  5. Click Finish to complete the configuration.
NOTE: eM Client will automatically sync contacts using CardDAV when a CalDAV connection is made (and vice versa); therefore, you should only need to complete these steps once. To manually configure the Contacts section in the Accounts settings, repeat the steps, choosing Contacts and CardDAV in step 2.

This does not work. In SmarterMail up to version 13, it worked using the path . In SmarterMail 14 this no longer works. Using Mozilla Lightning and others. The previous article on how to sync with Thunderbird lightning has been removed -- BOOOO HISSSSS.

this does not provide detail on how to sync ONLY the calendar. When adding the CalDav connection, both the calendar and contacts will appear in em client but what if you only need one (CALENDAR or CONTACTS). clarification needs to be provide to sync only ONE. In addition to this, clarification needs to be provide for adding an account that has shared calendars attached to it with permission.

Please see the red NOTE in the article: eM Client will sync both when using either CardDAV or CalDAV. That is the way they have, apparently, designed eM Client to work with a webDAV protocol.
