After about a decade of using Thunderbird, I recently switched to Outlook. The one in developer preview now is really good on macos.

This post reminded me of how amazing thunderbird is. Just wish the calander support for gmail was better out of the box.

Hi Shaunak, glad you liked this post. Which feature are you missing in Thunderbirds calendar system? To be honest: Thunderbirds calendar is one of the main reasons I stick to Thunderbird, because I can sync calendars on my on servers with WebCal and TbSync. Even Outlook doesn't have that feature... Don't have any experience with gmail calendars though...

Hey Andreas,
Sadly for work I have to sync my gmail calander and a Microsoft Exchange account, and the only way to do this currently is with the Lightning addon, which sadly isn't as robust with syncing as my colleagues would like :) -- especially on a VPN. Sometimes I miss last minute meetings. I'm sure there will be a setting to improve the polling rate etc. but I switched to Outlook recently and I've been fairly happy. But your post does inspire me to switch back - maybe this weekend!

I see, I'm sorry that it didn't work for your setup. Calendar support is now integrated in the Thunderbird core (no add-on necessary anymore), maybe it's worth to give it another try with the current Thunderbird 78?

Oh wow. I didn't know that. Will do!
