KDE Kontact is a personal information manager and groupware software suite for KDE. It unites mature and proven applications including KMail, KAddressBook, KOrganizer, KNode, and KNotes.

Consequently, the package supports calendars, contacts, notes, to-do lists, news, and email. It uses KParts to embed the various applications into the container application.

The components of KDE Kontact are tailored to work well with each other. This results in features such as intuitive drag-and-drop between appointment handling, task lists and contacts.

KDE Kontact supports various groupware servers. When using these servers your workgroup has access to features like shared email folders, group task lists, calendar sharing, central addressbooks and meeting scheduling.
