I'm not a computer guy, but easy enough to install thunder bird and lightning. Very simple. email works just fine. Calender seems to be local only. Does nothing when syncing. No errors, no notice, just doesn't sync. guess I'm the only person using hotmail. No posts at all. What am I missing? Not a clue what all those server addresses are or protocols, the email setup effortlessly, set itself up. I really like the calender, smokes the email account calenders. Would like to use it-HELP

I'm using Lightning synced with Google Calendar for some time without any previous problems.

As invitations received by e-mail were not showing in my Calendar, within Lightning I changed the Calendar properties for the Google Calendar so that the setting for E-mail was changed from 'none' to my e-mail address. This means that e-mail invites now appeared in my Calendar.

However, for e-mail invitations from others that i accept I now appear to be shown as the organizer (even though I am not). Other invitees are now seeing me as the organizer and I receive e-mail notifications of acceptances and declines.

I'm not sure if this is a Lightning or Google issue.

Hi,

I'm a very hard user of Lightning and today I missed 2 appoinments because they were not shown in my agenda.

They popped up in my mobile phone notifications, but I was out of office, as I did not expect them.

This is not the first time. Events that I am accepting via invitation to my e-mail, are not being shown.

Would you mind helping me to solve this issue?

Cheers.

The most recent update for Thunderbird seems to have done something weird. When I try to load Thunderbird, it pops up a Google Calendar login dialog box. However, the box is blank, and it won't let you close it. Before this started happening, a small box popped up, and said something about one of the calendars being read-only. I didn't know why I was getting that message, had never gotten it before, so I just closed it. Now I can't open Thunderbird at all. I've tried shutting down, and restarting my computer, and now Thunderbird just hangs with this blank Google Calendar login box. Please help as I need my email!!!

My reminders for a certain recurssing that is setup through Exchange EWS Provider Add-on for Lightning to an Exchange servers suddenly not dismissable for two occasions now. Pressing the Dismiss or Dismiss All buttons literally does nothing - the reminders window does not close, nothing comes through in the error console, and everything is still the same. Pressing X makes the window come back up again after a period of time. Both meetings are in the past now, yet the reminders keep persisting.

How can I fix this?

Using TB 24.3.0 and EWS Provider 3.2.0-Beta76.

I've just installed TB 24.4.0, Lightening 2.6.4 and Provider for Google Calendar 0.25 Win 8.1 64-bit (I use desktop 99.9999% of the time) Dell XPS 18, 8gb RAM, C: has 363 GB Free

What is happening is on the mail tab the "today pane" always uses 1/2 the window. I can not resize it. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90621425/Mail%20tab.png also when I'm on the Add-ons tab

On the calendar tab it acts normal: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90621425/calendar%20tab.png as well as the tasks tab

you will also notice the x to close it and the "today pane" button at the bottom of TB don't display either.

It seemed to work until I installed "Google Tasks Sync", I removed that plug-in and nothing has changed. Has anyone seen this before?

Love the visual upgrade to this mail client, I've been using WLM 2012 forever, but its having issues with Google Play emails. Add to that its possible to have outlook.com accounts in TB and the calendar and this client is head and shoulders above.

I'll surely donate once I can keep the today pane displayed (in a reasonable size) on the mail tab.

To the right of the two lines for the event start and end times there is an double arrow that ties the start and end times. This results in a fixed duration of the event. I can click on the top of the arrow and turn off that part but still does not allow me flexibility in event duration. How can I remove this fixed timing? Thank you for any help.

Hi All,

Another Lightning, possible CALDAV question.

I recently upgraded to Thunderbird 28 and Lightning 3.0b1. I realize these are beta versions but they solved nearly all the CALDAV issues so thanks so much.

We are syncing to yahoo calendar via CALDAV and no issues with that.

However since I did the upgrade all meeting invites are being process 7 hours earlier than the exact time. The meeting invite is showing correct time but it shows up in lightning and yahoo as 7 hours earlier. I've confirmed all other meeting invitees (Not using Thunderbird) are not having this issue. Since I am not the originator I can not manually change the time.

Anyone have any ideas. I have checked pacific time in Lightning and Yahoo is correct.

Thanks

I have Thunderbird 24.4.0 running under Mac OS X 10.9.2. If i send a meeting invite from an other Mac using mail/calendar to Thunderbird, I received the meeting invite including date, time, accept,decline, etc.. Accepting the invite adds and entry in my mac Calendar. If I received the same type of invite from MS Windows Outlook 2010 the message received in Thunderbird does not contain the meeting event info (I examined the source for both messages). Any thoughts?

It would make our Dyscalculia-life much easier if we could jump from day to day by using the cursor buttons. Example: Today is 28th. 17 days ahead? Has this month 30 or 31 days? Okay, 31. 28 plus 3 = 31. 17 - 3 = 14. It's the 14th. - Much easier to press the right-button 17 times. Same with weeks, if I could use the down-cursor-button.

Can you please make this possible? Thanks!

I'm hoping there is an add-on or extension that enables me to customize events that repeat, but not with the regularity that is currently available with Lightning. I need to keep track of recurring events that may land on the 15th of this month, but next month it lands on the 2nd, and the following month its not until the 28th. These events are not consistently the same day or the same distance apart, but I would still like them linked. What options are there for this sort of capability?
