Tried with (currently) latest beta exchangecalendar-3.2.0-Beta76.xpi

Works great!

Totally broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Is this addon still maintained ?

If this AddOn does not work on latest versions of thunderbird please get rid of it !

get the error with lightning 2.6.2:[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80570015 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CI_RETURNED_FAILURE) [nsIJSCID.createInstance]" nsresult: "0x80570015 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CI_RETURNED_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: resource://calendar/modules/calUtils.jsm -> file:///home/dmarteau/.thunderbird/hzfljxis.default/extensions/%7Be2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103%7D/calendar-js/calCalendarManager.js :: cmgr_createCalendar :: line 474" data: no]

No Lightning-Exchange Calendar Sync product - ARGH! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If someone would get and keep this running I bet the contrbutions would roll in!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well, Simon...

I'm sorry to see this project go by the way-side. :-/

It is (was?) a really good connector and the "replacement" for it doesn't seem to work at all.

I do hope the best for you in your future endeavors.

For those who can't get this to work on Thunderbird or Postbox, try this trick, which worked for me with version 0.18 running on Postbox 3.03:

1. Rename the .xpi file to .zip
2. Extract the zip file
3. Edit the install.rdf file, find your application (Postbox, etc.) and change the Max Version as needed (e.g., 3.*)
4. Re-zip the files into a .zip file
5. Rename the .zip file back to .xpi
6. Install into Thunderbird or Postbox

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Say's it's not compatible with the new version. Would be nice if there is a uniformed update on all. Ervery time there is an update, half of my add-ons are not working anymore.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17). 

So you should rather give a bad review to Thunderbird itself than on the addon?

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'd love to give $10 or $15 to this app. However, I need it to be compatible with Postbox v 3 and the lightning add on. Once it is, I will purchase and upgrade both products.

I want to donate, but ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

... I'd really like everyone to donate.

I use this addon every day and it works well enough that I don't need to run outlook most of the time. Ideally it would be as polished as outlook, but I can understand this this project is voluntary and open source.

I don't have time to help directly, but I would be willing to pay for improvements to this addon.

The donate system here at AMO is ok, but there isn't really a good way to see how many people are donating or what the money goes towards.

I'd really like my employer to contribute towards this software, but at the moment there isn't enough information here for me to ask.

Can this be improved in some way? Even an update of the project status and perhaps a fundraising target would help.

Regards,
A happy non-customer ;-)

install.rdf need to be updated for compatibility Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Even though v0.17 show that is it compatible with TB 3.0a1pre - 9.*, the install.rdf still has the maxVersion for TB listed as 5.*. This cause issues with the install. Please update the add-on to make it compatible with the latest TB version. Thanks

Sending Invitations? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Configuring the Exchange Calendar works for me except the sending of invitations.

synchronizing more calendars? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to synchronize more than the standard calendar of MS Exchange? With this addon and the often mentioned adress "https://login/ews/exchange.asmx" I'm only able to implement the standard calendar of Exchange into Lightning. If I create another calender, it will not be synchronized with the above mentioned adress!

Any ideas?

Thx.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17). 

Only the standard calendar is supported right now. I happily accept patches to add other calendars!

explanation of string Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Can someone help me here: I have very little knowledge of network servers and the language, eg the use of $ signs etc. Can someone put an actual example of what the string should be for the location?

Assume my user name is "bob"
I can do outlook web access by typing in: https://mail.mywebsite.com/owa so what would my active directory domain be?
Thanks

WORKS with TB v6.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My mistake regarding my previous review on this plugin. I did get this to install with TB v6.0.1. Works like a charm! 5 stars.

++++++++++++++++++
This plugin for Thunderbird is a great idea, but doesn't seem to work with Thunderbird v6.0.1. I rated it with 4 stars because its an awesome idea and one less star for not working with TB v6.0.1. Thanks for maintaining this plugin!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17). 

Works with 6.0

That's odd. It works here with TB 6.0. Please file a bug report if you can't get it to work.

works for me with seamonkey 2.3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works for me with the https://$ADdomain\$login@$exchangeserver/EWS/Exchange.asmx connection string. I add to modify the install.rdf to add support for seamonkey.
Might be a good idea to add default support for seamonkey ?

Works for me too (syr.edu), once I figured it out Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I had this plug-in for weeks and made many attempts to make it work. One thing that kept me going is all the positive reviews here of people being successful with making their Exchange working. (Well, and perhaps strong dislike for Outlook software.)

So if you are on Syracuse University email @syr.edu domain, than you need to FIRST (!) create an IMAP account in your Thunderbird and make sure that is working fine. Then you need to follow instruction on the plug-in support page. Finally what you need (and I was missing out on for weeks) is to know the domain. For SU it is exchange.syr.edu so the final line would look like this https://exchange%2Esyr%2Eedu%5C[your_username_here]@auto/
After (!) the set up is complete and I have my new but yet empty calendar in Lightning, Thunderbird asks for password again, and I remove the username that's there and put in [myusername]@syr.edu and than password. It asks it several times. I haven't figured out why, but it works: I can see my web/exchange calendar and make online modifications to it.
next thing is to get contacts synced :-/

Works for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works for me with Exchange 2007 and:
https://DOMAIN%5CUSERNAME@owa.domain.co.uk/EWS/Exchange.asmx
Changing DOMAIN and USERNAME for the short version of my domain and my log in username.
Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great once you find that:
https://$ADdomain\$login@$exchangeserver/EWS/Exchange.asmx

Is the configuration that works. As soon as it supports tasks and contacts, I will gladly donate $30.00 I promise.

0.17 Working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

0.17 Works well, https://domain\name@auto did not work for me as the auto configuration points to a local mail server, but https://domain\name@domain/EWS/Exchange.asmx worked out well.A big thank-you for everyone that helped out to get it working.

Does not work with OWS (microsoftonline.com) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As two other reviewers have noted, this plugin does NOT work with microsoft online (online web services).

So if you domain is hosted with microsoftonline.com you are not going to be able to use this plugin to access your Exchange calendar.

I have both pidgin (domain/username) and thunderbird working with Microsoft Online, but there are no instructions to make this work with microsoftonline.

Thunderbird mail using red001.mail.microsoftonline.com to connect.
Pidgion uses pool1.oconline.microsoftonline.com to connect... (I posted the instructions to make this work here -> http://sourceforge.net/projects/sipe/forums/forum/688534/topic/4628665 )

But without knowing the instructions and without know the server name (I tried red001.mail and pool1.oconline) and how they want the connect (what are the bind lines needed?) It does not appear this plugin will work with Microsoftonline services.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.16). 

Thanks for your bug report. I have filed it in the bug tracking system at <https://bugs.launchpad.net/lightning-exchange-provider/+bug/819558> and will update it there as I try to fix the bug.
