Thunderbird + Calendar Extension + SyncKolab

Make sure you use the calendar extension (not lightning), with synckolab 
0.4.19.  I couldn't get lightning to work at all last time I tried. 
When you set it up, use the newer XML format for storing the 
calendars/todos.  There's a bug in the old format.

It also does syncs contacts, which is what I actually use it for.  It 
works great, although it's not the speediest extension I've used.  It 
requires an IMAP server to store the items on.
