I noticed that synchronizations had a count greater than I expected, so I ran the next one with Preview turned on. What I found was many Events from the past, that were getting re-synchronized unexpectedly.` Here is an example from the Preview report: Action______Content__Description________________...

Re: Apple iPhone Contact's Birthday can cause Sync Failure

Hi Birdie, Glad you were able to confirm what I was seeing. Even if you set the contact's year of birth to 1604 (and the year disappears), it still causes a sync failure. So I played around with some other birth years and found the following: A birth year of 1605 will show as that year in the iPhone...

Apple iPhone Contact's Birthday can cause Sync Failure

I have just discovered that if you don't fully specify a contact's birthday (include a birth year) on your iPhone, then it will cause a Sync Failure in the Birthdays calendar. I have been using BirdieSync to align my calendars for many years - between my iPhone and Thunderbird, running on my Windows...

Connection between Thunderbird & BirdieSync is cycling

Thunderbird 52.0.0 and BirdieSync 3.1.0.0 beta 1 worked fine - no issues detected. Thunderbird then did an automatic update to 52.0.1 and I noticed the following problems: BirdieSync started using significant Processor resources and showing "Not Responding" errors.

Method to Save & Restore the Sync Configuration

I just had to re-build my Windows 10 PC from scratch, so I had to re-create the Configuration settings manually. First of all I must tell you how much better the guidance (help comments) are since I did this process when you first released Version 3. But I must admit I am a little lazy when it comes...

I expected to be able to go to the Menu "Help | Check for Update" and see an offer to download the newest version, as I have done many times in the past. Unfortunately, I got the messa...

I was reviewing this help series of windows, when I accidentally discovered a minor issue, that I wanted to bring to your attention. On page 4 (First Steps), I was clicking around to see what the "down-facing chevron" icon did and discovered that if you click on the text "First Steps" within the bor...

Re: History Report - making it easier to read

Seeing what you did in Beta 22, I think the border around the "in focus" history item works well. Thanks.
