Used with great success on TB 2, 4 stars.
Use on TB 3 is very problematic for Contacts. Issues could be related to O/S / IMAP Server / TB3. Back up Address Books before use.
Seems to work well for Calendar

Wonderful as a nice easy solution for keeping contacts in sync using an imap folder. Badly needs an update to 3.1 though.

Will not install in TB 3.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Thunderbird 3.1 on OSX 1.5 (Leopard) refuses to install the latest version of Sync Kolab, claiming it is incompatible add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.0). 

this should be resolved with 1.5.1. I also encourage everyone to write bug reports so I can fix the problems you have.

Sync Kolab 1.5.0 works perfectly (for addresses)
on my Thunderbird 3.0.4, both under Windows XP (Sp3) and Mac OS X 10.6.3 (Snow Leopard).

Thank you Mart__

after I did what you said, it worked quite fine with thunderbird 3.0.1
The only Problem is, that there seems to be an error in
content/synckolab/addressbook.js
The function cur.editCardToDatabase in line 737 is never defined. I just deleted the function call and now everything works fine for me syncing contacts to an imap-account.

Great addon

Nightly build broken... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Current published version (above) says it works with 3.0b4. I downloaded this one, renamed the *.xpi to *.zip and edited install.rdf to say max version is 3.0.*. Saved, renamed back to *.xpi and installed. Works fine! Needs a bit more polish for 100% compatibility.

No compatible with Thunderbird 3 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No compatible with Thunderbird 3. I've also tried the Nightly edition but got the infamous "XXX will not be installed because it does not provide secure updates" message. After disabling security, I managed to install the XPI, the extension would not start, "options" kept crashing, etc.

This is exactly what i want! But i can´t use it, because it´s for Thunderbird 2 only. Nightly build also didn´t work. :(
Please release new Version!

Great addons for Thunderbird 2, it would be great an update for the incoming Tb 3 version.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

this is a great addon (when it works). It allows simple set-and-forget contact and calendar sharing on multiple machines (even when both are running, which is impossible using shared network folders).

I've gotten it to work fine with addresses, but it always hangs when trying to sync calendars (using lightning). Once that bug gets sorted, you can even use it as a cheap groupware solution (like sharing a calendar with friends) as long as everybody has access to the same IMAP account.

Version bump? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Any chance that the max version can be bumped to include 3.0pre?

Works nicely with small address books, and really does synchronize them (as opposed to Addressbooks Synchronizer). Yet it ignores address lists and it does not progress on my real address book with 700+ entries and some 20 lists. So I'm back with exporting to LDIF files, syncing them with unison and kdiff3 more or less manually, and then re-importing them :-(

I've been searching for an easy way to sync contacts and calendars for many years, everything was either buggy, expensive or "too online" in the sense of not respecting privacy. With this tool (but use the current 1.0.3!!) and "lightning" you get a solid, simple and elegant solution which needs only an imap email account (it does NOT require kolab!). Works very nicely for me on ubuntu jaunty, but I had to use the newer version 1.0.3 from the author's site.

The only drawback is that it's a bit slow, but I think comfortable enough. What is missing in my opinion is an option to automatically sync when launching / shutting down thunderbird.

This is good work, thanks a lot to the author, keep it going!

Sync Kolab works well Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have found this to be a top little add-on. Initially I did have problems with the loss of some shared calendar entires exactly as per ikpetrof mentioned. However I figured out why. I am using Citadel as my IMAP server and it seems that Citadel can accept Sync Kolab with either the ICAL/Kolab1 OR XML/Kolab2 formats - but not both together. That means ALL clients need to sync in the one format - one or the other. If just one client is using a different format, sooner or later you WILL lose calendar entries. I can only speak for Citadel, I don't know how other IMAP servers react to differing sync formats. Having said that, one thing I would like to see, is a way of stopping clients from fiddling with their sync settings. Still all-in-all, it's a great and very useful little addon.
