probleme mit der synchronisation Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Eigentlich scheint Synckolab das Program zu sein nach dem wir schon lange gesucht haben, allerding haben wir Probleme mit der Sychronisation. Das Programm bietet zwar die Möglichkeit an zu entscheiden welche Quelle überschrieben werden soll und welche überhaupt Schreibrechte hat, leider ändert sich bei uns aber nichts - egal mit welcher Einstellung Sychronisiert wird, die Kontakte auf dem Imap-Server werden nicht aktualisiert und die Kontakte am lokalen Rechner werden überschrieben. Auf der Mailinglist von gargan.org wurde diese Problem zwar von einem Nutzer beschrieben, jedoch ohne darauf eine Antwort zu bekommen.
Vielleicht klappt es ja auf diesem Weg das Programm zum laufen zu bringen?!

Soo nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Forever and a day, I've wanted a contact sync that did not share my private data with someone who I did not know. Finally, Niko has done it! Thanks dude.

So, how do I use the auto sync capability you state on the web page?

Thanks!

auto sync

just setup synckolab for sync, set the time interval for autosync (ie. 60 to check once an hour) also check the \"hide window\" checkbox and you are good to go. once an hour synckolab will sync your configuration (you will see a progress at the bar bottom right corner)

Gmail sync Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I tried to syncronize it with gmail. But it does not work at all. If it is due to my Japanese OS, Vista Ultimate. Anyway it does not make any sense to me unfortunately.....
Though everybody can be happy thanks to this software.

you using gmail imap?

actually, from the mailing list it seems that quite a few people are actually using it with gmail imap. Sorry that you gave up so fast, maybe you should take a look at the faq or the mailing list.

works perfectly! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Five stars are hardly enough to describe the usefulness of this extension. If you write e.mails on more than one computer, it's a must-have!

Ever missed an appointment because you forgot that you entered it only on the other computer?
Fed up with taking care of two address books in parallel? Get this extension and have more fun in life! :)

I have version 1.0.0 running with Thunderbird 1.5 and 2.0. After the first sync, nothing is overwritten, you will see all entries on all machines. After deleting the double ones, you are set!

As already said, I can only recommend this extension. I did not lose contacts, no appointments disappeared -- Sync Kolab does what it is supposed to do, reliably!

Dankeschön!

A real solution! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this to automatically sync my contacts between my Windows home computer, Linux work computer and Mac laptop. It works perfectly, and the developer is extremely fast with fixing bugs. I have been searching for such a solution for a long time. Thanks!

I have used it for years Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Over the years that I have been using Sync Kolab it has continuously improved. The efforts of the author are to be commended. There were problems in the beginning that almost caused me to quit using it, but over time, most of my objections were resolved. Sync Kolab's current reliability and the availability of Lightning have made Thunderbird my primary email client.

Never completes a sync Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Never able to complete a sync. I have used 2 different imap servers and different address books yet it always hangs at some point and never completes.

UPDATE: I completely removed and reinstalled. I also created a new sync folder and disabled my firewall. One of these steps fixed the problem but at this point I am not sure which one. Just completed my first sync from home/office and all appears well so I will raise my rating. Thanks.

Works great for syncing address books in multiple copies of Firefox Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I switched to IMAP recently for my personal email and the IMAP works great for access from multiple computers, but I had a real problem with my address book since there was no easy way to make sure mutiple computers had the same address book. Sync Kolab does exactly that. All you do is create an IMAP folder in your own account to hold the sync info, then create a sync profile that specifies which address book you want to sync to that IMAP folder. Do the same in each computer and you then have perfectly synced contacts among multiple computers.

There are still a few wrinkles as it's still pre-release, but it works and the developer is quite responsive.

Excellent add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Advantage over web-based address book/calendar is that one has a local copy. Version 0.5.3 is an improvement. Earlier versions sometimes deleted entries for unclear reasons.

great little extension Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great idea.
Very simple way to sync everything.
Maybe in a few months we'll be able to sync all calendars, contacts and mail with just one imap login.

Need to Sync more Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent add-on not only for back up, but for those with multiple locations. Here is a suggested improvement: This routine seems to only back up one Address Book or Calendar, allow the selection of multiple books and calendars for those of us that have several of these.

Actually...

your suggestion is available since the 0.3.X you can specify an unlimited number of configurations, including automatic background sync
