Mozilla Thunderbird

- Palm Sync:

Mozilla Thunderbird's Address Book can sync with Palm Pilot Address Book. Besides palmsync.xpi file installation, you have to install the Contacts Sidebar extension. Contacts from Personal Address Book are synchronized to Palm.

And here is my experience with this conduit. It works! (Nov 29, 2004)

- Using Outlook contacts:

user_pref("ldap_2.servers.Outlook.description", "Outlook");
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.Outlook.dirType", 3);
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.Outlook.uri", "moz-aboutlookdirectory://op/");

Also, Outlook has to be set as the default mail client.

Mozilla Thunderbird tips:

Compatibility with Thunderbird?

This extension appearing on the most popular downloads for Thunderbird list always looks so incongruous. Try to install and you get an error message stating something like this extension is not compatible with versions above 0.9+. The solution is the same as for the other extensions that were similarly misbehaving when Firefox reached 1.0 at the end of last year. With the other extensions they were quickly fixed so this is the first time I've ever had to resport to it. Solution is: 1) Rename extension so it has a .zip ext. 2) Open it and extract the .rdf file. 3) Scroll down to the appearance of "0.9+" (this is the second block) 4) Edit it to something like "1.0.3+" 5) Add the .rdf back to the zip. 6) Rename the zip back to .xpi 7) Install
