    Default Zimbra Thunderbird address book sync

    I want to synchronize Zimbra and Thunderbird Address book. I had already configured thunderbird for imap email and for calendar synchronization, but address book sync is still missing. Export and import address book is not enough for the enterprise solution I need.

    Does anybody have this problem too?

    Default Any movement on this?

    Just like the poster above, I can get everything to sync with T-bird except contacts. This should be a easy fix, no?

    unfortunately not. your contacts in zimbra are held in sql, not ldap, so there's no obvious mechanism for synch. a thunderbird plugin or zimbra ldap proxy would be necessary.

    i vaguely remember there's an openldap proxy for mysql. i wonder if zimbra has a resident openldap expert that might be able to point us in the right direction

    Default zindus

    Here is an extension for Thunderbird that syncs the addressbook with Zimbra: zindus

    Certainly - it's all open source. If you download the .xpi file and unzip it you'll find a .jar file. Unzip that and you find the javascript.

    Post If you are having trouble...

    If you are having trouble getting Zindus to work, try removing any LDAP address books from Thunderbird.

    I had the Zimbra GAL set up as an LDAP address book, and this caused Zindus to fail. By removing the GAL, I got my personal address books to sync, and the GAL comes from Zindus as well.
