My Reviews

Provider for Microsoft Exchange

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 :-/

Remove Duplicate Messages

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This plug in reaffirms why Mozilla is better than Microsoft!!
I had created duplicate messages by accident in MS Outlook (via Exchange connection) and had 1K+ useless copies cluttering my search results.
This add-on was easy to install and with just a couple clicks I moved all my duplicates to the trash folder! (Note step 2 is to empty trash folder.)
I tried deleting messages one by one in Outlook, but after half an hour figured it is not a manual job. Luckily I had Thunderbird too! :-)
P.s. Similar plug-in for Outlook is $24! :-/ So I am so happy this is free, so I was glad to send the developer a contribution!
