Re: 3.1.0.0b1 unable to read Thunderbird contacts & events

Hello dwolma,

While Thunderbird source is connected to BirdieSync server, could you please build a log archive with BirdieSync menu "Help/Archive logs..." then send BirdieSyncLog.zip to support(at)birdiesync.com ?

Thanks.

Re: After Update of a New Version 52.0 of Thunderbird

Hello Peter, For some reason, it seems that Thunderbird 52.0 can be installed with Thunderbird menu "?/About Thunderbird" although it is not officially available on Thunderbird web site. BirdieSync 3.1.0.0 beta 1 has been released which supports Thunderbird 52.0. Due to important changes in Mozilla ...

Version 3.1.0.0 beta 1 Caution: Due to important changes in Mozilla core technology on which Thunderbird is based, it was necessary to fully rewrite BirdieSync add-on in Thunderbird. Although this new add-on was heavily tested, it is highly recommended to backup your data. For more security, the pr...

Re: Very long sync times

Actually I usually prefer to get all possible information in logs and not clean them. Sometimes useful information can be found in the past. But it should be possible to directly edit the logs in the archive, however.

Re: Very long sync times

The fact that you use 2 different BirdieSync servers could potentially lead to additional resynchronizations but it may not be a normal behavior. Let's suppose that you synchronized your desktop Thunderbird with your Android device. If you then copy the Thunderbird profile on the laptop with a new B...

Re: Very long sync times

Hello Tranas, You said that you transferred Thunderbird profile to another computer. Was it a profile already synchronized with BirdieSync ? Did you copy this Thunderbird profile to the other computer ? Do you synchronize several Thunderbird sources with BirdieSync ? Do you synchronize a local calen...

Re: Synchronize several Thunderbird Address Books with iPhone

If you wish to synchronize several address books in Thunderbird and be able to create new groups on the iPhone, then it would be necessary to select a non Exchange account as the default contact account on your iPhone, like "On My iPhone" or "iCloud". But note that if you do so, when you create a ne...

Re: Synchronize several Thunderbird Address Books with iPhone

Even if I couldn't see the address books that you set ON for your iPhone, I guess Main address book "No group" was set ON (synchronised with Main address book "berufliche Kontakte" in Thunderbird), and "Sonstige Kontakte" was set ON (synchronized with "Sonstige Kontakte" in Thunderbird). BirdieSync ...

Hello slengfe, I have set the contact configuration to the one which should be able to sync TB several address books to one iPhone address book. Do you mean that you selected "group" virtual address book mode for your iPhone in BirdieSync configuration ? ("each contact group represents an address bo...

Re: Groups

I'm not familiar with the add-on you mention. If it writes to the usual contact category field in Thunderbird local database and doesn't have its own way of storing contacts or contact category, then the following may apply: Usually if you want to synchronize Thunderbird categories to Android, it is...

Re: Groups

Hello pewe,

When you talk about "categories" for contacts in Thunderbird, do you mean the "Category" fields which is not available by default in Thunderbird user interface ? Do you use a specific add-on to access to this field for each contact ?
Thanks.
