Lightning and Office 365 Calendar integration

I'm working on setting up Thunderbird for a client who makes use of Office 365. I have regular email working nicely, no problems there, but I cannot get Lightning to sync up with the calendars.

As a quick side note, the links for support on the Lightning site are dead and should be removed or updated ('Get Support' at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/projects/calendar/). The 'Support Site' link at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/lightning/ is a read-only blog. Not exactly a support site at all.

Procedure I'm following is basically what's found at http://it.ucmerced.edu/node/402.

When I reach Step 14, nothing happens. Autodiscover hangs indefinitely, no errors, no results. I contacted and worked with Microsoft already, they provided the following URLs, none of which worked:

- https://outlook.office365.com/ews/exchange.asmx - https://m.outlook.com/ews/exchange.asmx - (and one more which is more specific to the organization, omitted for privacy)

Same deal as autodiscover-- no errors, no prompts, just sits there (have waited over a half hour on test machines).

Office 365 is incredibly common, I cannot be the only one attempting this configuration recently.

Windows 7, latest Thunderbird, latest Lightning, and the latest add-on from http://www.1st-setup.nl/wordpress/?page_id=133. I realize the add-on is a bit old, which might be my problem but I'd like some corroboration.

Has anyone out there successfully configured Lightning to work with their Microsoft hosted O365 calendars? Suggestions?

Thanks much!

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?

I use Exchange for work and Google Calendar for life. I have already managed to get these both to show in Thunderbird, but now I would like to have the events from each calendar to copy to the other (so that I could see everything on Google's calendar web page and I could also let the Mrs see when I'm busy).

Has anybody ever created an extension or some other trick to sync the events between calendars?

This morning my calendar events disappeared after working properly for many months. The "add new event" button is grayed out and I can not add any events to even test it. I am using Lightning 3.3.1 and Thunderbird 31.1.2 and have it synced to my Google calendar. All was working perfectly until this morning. I tried reinstalling Lighting 3.3.1 with no results.

When I try to add a new event to my Lightning calendar I get this error, the calendar is locked as "read only" and when I restart the app the event is no longer in the calendar. I have seen this sort of error for as long as I have been using T-bird but it has never been so total.

I am running under windows 8, T-bird ver 24.4.0 and Lightning 2.6.4. It appears I have enabled test pilot for Tbird and it is ver 1.3.9.

These calendars were copied from my old computer's hard drive and I am guessing there is something different about the format??? That Tbird was stuck on an older revision which I don't know the number.

I'm on Thunderbird 78.4.1 release. I can add an event in Thunderbird calendar, but it does not get added to Google calendar. I can add an event in Google calendar and it does get added to Thunderbird calendar. I can delete an event in Thunderbird calendar, that is also in Google calendar, and it does get deleted in Google calendar. I have 3 extensions: Provider for CalDav & CardDav, Provider for Google Calendar, & TbSync. I've tried enabling & disabling all combinations, but still cannot get Thunderbird calendar event to get added to Google calendar. Is there a post specifically for my release of Thunderbird that explains how to properly sync these calendars?

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!!!
