    Why is that? The add-on is open source and the developer is willing to pass it on to someone else.

    Yes, I saw that and I've got my fingers crossed that it happens. I know I can get around the GAL sync by adding a LDAP address book but personal contacts are a different story. Aren't they stored in sql?

    I sometimes found Zindus a tiny bit clunky, but I always rolled with it and was appreciative. I'm not sure how a project like Zimbra, that is built on open-source, doesn't have a good solution for the leading open-source client. I don't want to use Outlook or Exchange, but Zimbra provides a pretty solid Outlook connector and there is better support (at least read-only Contacts access) for Exchange in Thunderbird.

    Unfortunately I'm a SysAdmin geek, and not a developer, so I can't really do anything about this except hope that someone picks up the project (maybe the Zimbra team?). Does anyone have any other suggestions for T-Bird-Zimbra Contacts sync?

    Thank you Lance. I started the internal discussion, so we'll see where it goes.

    It works fine here to both create and remove appointments.

    More than I can say for the spell check as you type, which only works for the first email after loading TB (there's already a bug report?)

    Zindus is/was nice but you can achieve the same results now with CardDav.

    There's more than one Thunderbird plugin for that so pick the one that best suits your needs. SoGo Connector works for me.
