I have been using owl for roughly two years. I found it really great and reliable.

I am however (slightly) irritated by a minor feature : all events registered via thunderbird or my smartphone agenda are duplicated as soon as the events are sync. I am using TB 78.13.0 with windows 10.
This is not very problematic but slightly irritating.
Am I the only one observing this feature?
Thanks

I used Exquilla for a long time. Excquilla doesn't seem to work well with the recent Thunderbird 91 update, and I am trying OWL.
Exquilla managed the login process in the background perfectly. However OWL requires me to login to my account at the popup browser every time Thunderbird restarts. Although there is option for background login in the Server settings menu, it just result in "Could not detect login form" message.

We're still working on the ExQuilla update for TB 91. If you have specific issues, other than those known issues in the release notes, you can send them to us at exquilla.support (at) beonex.com .

Owl uses a different protocol than ExQuilla, by default. But Owl also supports EWS experimentally. You can configure that by going to Addon | Owl | Settings | manual account | Protocol: EWS. Then Owl also uses EWS like ExQuilla. Hopefully that solves your issue.

At a first glance it looks promising. I have still one issue with it, I'm not able how to subscribe to a folder of another user? This should work imho out of the box but unfortunately I'm not able to see the calendar of the other user. Any suggestions how to fix that/improve that? Furthermore, I'm still missing a docu page of the extension. If I'm able to fix this small issue I would by a licence for sure.

Best regards
Niko

Hi Niko,

I'm happy that you like our addon. We've put a lot of work in it, and it's nice to see that you like it.

As for shared folders, you can configure the shared folder in Outlook Web Access in your browser. Then, after you restart Thunderbird, the same shared folders should appear in Thunderbird.

As for shared calendars, we don't support them yet. It's on our list of planned features, but I can't tell you when we'll be able to do to it.

Due to a recent security settings upgrade, I can no longer access my Office 365 mailboxes at work with IMAP, so I now use Owl to access them from Thunderbird. I haven't noticed any issues thus far.

The product works very well. Unfortunately, due to company policy, I had to stop using it and have hence asked to stop the subscription.
I was promptly offered a total refund without even being entitled to it. It proves how serious this is. Impressive.
Excellent customer support and an excellent product!
A great combination.

Plug and play support for Office 365. My company wanted everyone to access email through the web app, which completely destroyed my email workflow. Owl put it right back to where it was. Totally worth the nominal price.

I works great, no issues at the current moment. Set up was straight-forward. It makes. Useful add-on to Thunderbird.

Für E-Mails ein gutes Plugin, was gut funktioniert und schnell und sicher einzurichten ist, um das leidige Thema Exchange-Server und Thunderbird zu verbinden. Auch das Adressbuch funktioniert soweit reibungslos.

Für den Kalender trifft dies leider nicht zu: Hier tritt immer noch das leidige Problem mit Zusagen zu Terminanfragen auf: Entweder es gibt den Fehler 80004005 und der Termin wird nicht zugesagt oder es klappt und man wird gleich Organisator. Das ist leider äußerst unschön, da der ursprüngliche Organisator den Termin nicht mehr bearbeiten kann und vor allem auch nicht mehr absagen kann. Auch landen die ganzen Zu- und Absagen dann bei mir. Mein Support-Requests vom Januar und Juli 2020 (!) wurden bis heute dazu nicht beantwortet. Ich gehe davon aus, dass dieser Bug wohl nicht behoben wird. Von daher ist das für Leute, die auf den Kalender angewiesen sind, nicht brauchbar. Schade.

Hi LordSnyder, the second part sounds really bad. That should not happen. We are looking into this with high urgency.

Sorry that you didn't get a reply last year. We respond to most support requests now. Could you please send another support ticket, with a link to this review, so that I have a way to contact you? Once we have a potential fix, we might want to send you a beta version. I have no way to contact you here on this site. :-(

Sorry for the issues, and we're looking into it as we speak.

Works exactly as expected, including push notifications when EWS authentication is used. Good support received from the developers when I had a question. Recommended.

I've been wanting to merge my Fastmail and Outlook calendars on Thunderbird, but I haven't been able to do so because Outlook doesn't support CalDAV.

I'm glad I found this add-on because now I can have both my calendars in one place!

It does what it says on the box. It set up and gave me quick and easy access to my email from O365.

I had some performance issues with server side folders other than my inbox not pre-emptively downloading. I was happy to find calendar support - though it's apparently beta and I had an issue with it not updating a changed instance of a recurring meeting.

I sent the devs an email and they said there's some settings that could possibly fix my perf issue w folders, and they're looking into the calendar bug, but since our admins enabled Oauth2 with IMAP I just switched to that. Since I just bought it, the developer issued me a refund for my trouble!

So, yeah, you may have to dig into the settings if you have a complex setup, but I'd encourage anyone needing Exchange support to give this a try.

This tool saved me" It gets me right to company mail in a wink and back. I before that would have to Login Citrix start the desktop and then Outlook just to see who send a note.
Thanks perfect work, Works on all my installations of Thunderbird (WIN10, Linux, RASPIAN)

Decent enough product.
I've yet to find a way to subscribe to shared folders or shared calenders though, so somewhat middling.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.7.5). 

Neither shared folders nor shared calendars are promised features. Please see the feature description here and on https://www.beonex.com/owl/ for the expected feature set.

Tip: For shared folders, go to OWA, add the folder there, and restart Thunderbird.

Add-on läuft einwandfrei und stabil unter Windows 10 und Linux - auch mit EWS als Protokoll und Pushnachrichten.
Server: Exchange 2016.
Jeden Cent der Lizenz wert!

Add-on works fine on Windows 10 and Linux - even with EWS as protocol. Push messages works fine, too. Our company-server is Exchange 2016. Licence is worth every cent. A must have add-on for Exchange-users.

Works good if you only have one email account, but if you need Owl for more then one address, it doesn't work. I have multiple licenses for my company, so that is not the issue.

Update - Works great after using EWS on the other accounts. Sorry for the inconvenience.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.7.5). 

This is a limitation of the Microsoft protocol, not of Owl itself.
You can try to set up the account using EWS in the Owl settings. EWS allows several accounts at the same time.

Классная прога, но платная. После того как заблокировалась, купил Аутлук и забил на Трандерберд.

Hello Markus, unfortunately, we have no way to contact you. Could you please send a bug report to owl.support@beonex.com , with the complete error console log (TB menu | Tools | Developer | Error Console - as text)? Please mention in the email that we asked you to send it, so that our support can pass it on.

Thank you for your good rating!

It worked well and I used it almost year until my company turned ON multifactor authorization. After that, addon was unable do login. When i contacted plugin support, nobody answered me. So i decided to stop renewing license.

Answers to dev:
- recreated account and changed auth type to OWL.
woah! Now it works. Great. Hate outlook.

Did you change the authentication method in TB account settings?

Did you try to delete the account and set it up again?

I do really like this addon as it is the only option for me since my company enabled MFA. I can understand other reviewers that problems are annoying but developer reacts quickly. With the version 0.7.7.5 I do not see disappearing of emails anymore.

What I would consider being a developer of this addon is to create a community realm (Slack, forum, Github/Gitlab account without source but with issue tracker and releases etc) because that would be much more transparent for users and even the issues could be reported publicly and transparently.

Keep up the good work!
