Hm, okay. What i found so far is this one from the mailing list:

"The calendars are multiplexed - meaning that all of the calendars
appear as a single calendar on the device. The pure EAS protocol does
not allow for multiple calendars or address books. All events from all
synchronized calendars should be synched. When edited, the maintain
the relationship with the parent calendar - though all NEW events are
added to the user's "default" calendar."

The Horde Project (www.horde.org)
mrubinsk at horde.org

But according to  
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg650877%28v=exchg.80%29.aspx) the  
EAS protocol does support "user-created" Calender-folders. I'm not the  
EAS expert at all but isn't this the point we are looking for? It  
would be nice if someone technical skilled could comment on

- is EAS able to sync multiple calender?

- if yes, why the desicion to multiplex the calenders in Horde (beside  
code complexitiy of course)?

Many Thanks
