My Reviews

Google Contacts

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Did not work very well anyway, now abandoned
We appreciate the work of the author and understand that sometimes this happens. Author should remove projects (at least 10 that appear abandoned).
Now very happy with gContactSync !!

ExQuilla for Exchange

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Worked reasonably well. My university has student e-mail on the same locked-down system as the hospital, so this was (I thought) the only way to get Office 365 into Thunderbird (or into Linux at all!). Unfortunately, it is buggy and the developer is caught between two rapidly-changing systems, Micro$oft and TB. TB upgrades often break ExQuilla. I also had occasional crashes and TB "hanging" in memory when closing. That, plus confusion over the free trial period, I bailed.

I have moved to using a DavMail gateway that was much easier to setup than feared and it works great on several devices.

I didn't notice that my calendar was broken until after the fix was issued. That's pretty good response for a free (and *very* useful) plugin. Mistakes happen, give the developers a break (and a donation!). If this plugin is the *only* way you access your calendar, then you need to re-think your strategy and consider if you *really* need an electronic calendar. Both of my calendars are in the cloud, on my phone, on 2 tablets, via any web browser, etc., etc.
