Thread: Using Thunderbird with Groupwise

  1. #1

    Exclamation Using Thunderbird with Groupwise

    Im currently in work environment that uses Groupwise server. I want to use Thunderbird on my 12.2 openSUSE desktop. From what i can see it uses SOAP for sync of the calender and tasks etc. Thunderbird doesn’t support this? Is there any other way possible of sync between the two? Its really quite annoying, because evolution for gnome supports SOAP. I might put a feature request onto the Bugzilla see if its goes anywhere. The Groupwise client is missing some key features, and Thunderbird is what i use else where.

    Thoughts?

    That seems to be for accessing groupwise mail with IMAP. I think that only provides access to the mail, and not to the calendar functions that the OP wanted.

    Yes correct. I do have IMAP working, and i have imported address book & Calendar through files. But it doesn’t give the sync to Groupwise servers. I have now opted for evolution with the Groupwise lib installed which allows me to connect and does everything I want. Just would have been nice for Thunderbird to support this. I have always raved about Thunderbird and how its great, and this is the first time its let me down. From what i have gathered on the BugZilla they stopped SOAP support in Thunderbird because it was buggy and unreliable.

    That certainly sounds like a good description of the way SOAP has been
    used in many cases

    Thanks I have address book sorted, its just the calender/task sync to be honest. I reckon without writing my own SOAP request its never going to happen.

    * williamfleming,

    does your site use the Groupwise calendar publishing host? It publishes calendars on a webserver. That might work with Thunderbird.

    Very good question. Didn’t know groupwise had this feature. Will find out if this is a option today
