Rated 1 out of 5 stars

people have to make a living, but the difference here is that I set up the plugin for free, and now all of a sudden i have to buy a recurring license! Per year! At least with outlook I will be using what all my co-workers use and I know going in, that I am going to have to pay. Too bad, because this was a good plugin... and too bad the author didn't decide to use a different licensing model (i.e. more advanced or desireable features as part of a 'pro' version and not breaking products for a lot of people around the world).

Worked reasonably well. My university has student e-mail on the same locked-down system as the hospital, so this was (I thought) the only way to get Office 365 into Thunderbird (or into Linux at all!). Unfortunately, it is buggy and the developer is caught between two rapidly-changing systems, Micro$oft and TB. TB upgrades often break ExQuilla. I also had occasional crashes and TB "hanging" in memory when closing. That, plus confusion over the free trial period, I bailed.

I have moved to using a DavMail gateway that was much easier to setup than feared and it works great on several devices.

recurring fee? unacceptable. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

a one-time purchase might be OK, but a recurring annual fee is unacceptable extortion driven by greed.

Unfortunate Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's unfortunate that users don't read addon description. It's even more unfortunate that users trashtalk about paid addons.

Thunderbird lost most of it's support from Mozilla because they couldn't find way to monetize it. If you want good, complex and supported addon, you can't expect that for free.
Addons can be bad, not functional, lacking functions, crashy, buggy etc... but you can't trashtalk addon because you have to pay for it.

You as an user always have a choice of not using it.

Unfortunate Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Please find purchasers from paid email software, not in an open source software. A review is based on users view on how this software works as a whole, including the price. If the users don't like the licensing, then be ready to receive negative reviews. People are not trashing, they're giving their two cents. It works well, I'll give you that. No more, no less. Just very unfortunate. Instant un-install for me. And if I were you, I'd take down the comment about early adopters "not getting it" and trash talking this in reviews. That's very unprofessional.

ETA--Support fixed my search problem quickly. Thanks!

Works pretty well--my only problem with it is sometimes search results won't actually let me open the emails it finds, and I have to switch to Outlook to do my searching. Otherwise works as advertised.

Please give bug details

The issue that you mention has not been raised before, could you please file a support request and provide more details?

Carefull : Paying extension ! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In the beginning, i just had a problem for viewing correctly some exchange invitations for appointments. So i found this exquilla thing. Worked great. But paying 10$ for that, it's too much. And i'm really angry against Mozilla for not highlitning the paying extensions when you download it. That's the first time i see a paying extension in the addons website. I'll have to redo all my presets on my accounts after shooting exquilla extension.
Not happy with that..

Unfortunate

It's unfortunate that ExQuilla reviews are being used a a proxy for a debate about the philosophy of paid extensions. A better venue would be to send emails to amo-editors@mozilla.org See also my blog post http://mesquilla.com/2013/09/21/exquilla-as-a-model-for-thunderbird-professional-aka-swanfox/

update to review Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's decent for basic reading/writing emails, but...
1) there's nothing to distinguish a mail message from a meeting request. After I get an email, I have to check my Android phone's *stock* mail app to see if the message was actually a meeting request. Big pain, as I often forget to do this.

2) minor: doesn't refresh the 'message read' status properly, so I have to click back and forth on a directory to force it to clear the 'unread' status on the dir.

On the plus side, since my original review, the "Save All" Attachments button/right-click functions properly now -- thanks!

On the downside, since http://www.zdnet.com/mozilla-scraps-thunderbird-development-email-client-not-a-priority-anymore-7000000469/ , I'm really not sure I want to pay for add-ons.

Thanks

1) The UI for meeting requests is part of Lightning. If you have Lightning installed, you should see details of meeting requests. If not, this is a bug and please file a support request.
2) This is a known issue, but technically the flag you are talking about is the "New" flag and not the "Unread" flag.
Thanks for the fair and reasonable review.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Been using this for a few months now. Just what I needed to access my work's Exchange email with Thunderbird instead of Outlook. Haven't managed to make it work remotely yet (haven't tried real hard either) but flawless performance while on site. Calendar support would be nice but even without it I'll happily shell out my $10 when the free licence runs out.

To all the people whining about the 'scam' of a programmer who might expect to profit from their work, I saw right at the start that this would eventually be a paid add-on. If you couldn't be bothered reading about the add-on before you installed it, that's your problem not his. I also haven't experienced any popup nags.

Appendix works well but I miss one thing and do not know how to get around. No date on the printed email from today, is only an hour. Maybe someone knows?

Works fine... on supported platforms. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Four stars for not working on my FreeBSD systems. Linux plug-in works perfectly, even through a couple of Exchange server version upgrades.

Email Works Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Had no trouble downloading the addon and getting it to work for email with my exchange server. Tried to get calendar to work but the directions on the developers site aren't corresponding to current Thunderbird, and when I asked about I got a snarky response from R K James. Disappointing.

Bait and switch Rated 1 out of 5 stars

functionality stopped without notice, asking for payment. Frankly, even if he made it free at this point he's lost all trust with me. This crosses the line into scam and I am reporting it to mozilla

- in reply to the developer - i guess its just a coincidence that the payment notice came up and add on stopped working. in any event you NEVER said it was pay - it was advertised as free - so this is still deceptive- and as you can see there are many other reviews with similar experiences as mine

.-in second reply to the developer: it seems the pay message has been removed. I hope this is permanent, but it was disturbing that it was there in the first place. I am all for supporting developers of plug ins like these - but in the future, please chose a more prudent way to go about changing your model. Thank you.

This is completely inaccurate

ExQuilla has never made a request for payment, and no functionality is currently restricted by license. What HAS occurred is that users have been warned that there eventually will be a need for a license, and they are offered a free 6 month license that will work in a future version.

Makes TB extremely slow & unstable, bait & switch Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I used this for a while, in the hopes to avoid having to use DavMail to access exchange. While this addon does work, it causes Thunderbird to be extremely slow, have constant high CPU usage, and crash fairly regularly. Not only this, but as of a recent version, it pops up a message asking for payment. Complete bullshit.

Get's email, bait and switch Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Pro: It works for getting my email from exchange.
Con: Bait and switch. Instead of adding the functionality that is lacking to a paid version, we instead get a message saying pay to continue using the version without said functionality.
