Addressbooks Synchronizer

Synchronize Im-/Export Settings

Beschreibung

Synchronisiert ausgewählte Adressbücher

  • mit lokale Dateien (bzw. solchen auf Netzwerklaufwerken)
  • mit Dateien via FTP bzw. WebDAV (http oder https)
  • mit Dateien in einem IMAP Ordner

Es werden nur Adressbücher als ganzes ausgetauscht, es findet keine Synchronisierung der Inhalte statt!

ACHTUNG: Wenn der automatische Upload bei Programmende gewählt ist, sollte Thunderbird immer händisch geschlossen werden bevor man sich abmeldet oder den Rechner herunterfährt, andernfalls können Änderungen verloren gehen!

Download aktuelle Version

Description

Synchronizes selected addressbooks

  • with local files (resp. files on network shares)
  • with files via FTP or WebDAV (http or https)
  • with files stored in an IMAP folder

Only addressbooks as a whole are exchanged. There is no synchronization of the content.

ATTENTION: If you enabled the automatic upload when thunderbird closes, be sure to stop thunderbird before you logoff or shutdown your computer or you might loose your changes!

FAQ

Ich synchronisiere mehrere Rechner, aber nach dem Download sind immer nur die zuletzt hochgeladenen Änderungen vorhanden?
Addressbooks Synchronizer ist kein echtes Synchronisierungswerkzeug! Es werden lediglich die Adressbuchdateien als Ganzes ausgetauscht. Das letzte Hochladen überschreibt daher alle vorhergehenden Änderungen.
Ich habe auf einem Rechner ein Adressbuch zum Synchronisieren ausgewählt und hochgeladen. Aber auf anderen Rechner kann ich es nicht zum Synchronisieren auswählen, da es nicht in der Liste erscheint!
Es können nur Adressbücher zum Synchronisieren ausgewählt werden, die bereits auf dem lokalen Rechner vorhanden sind! Das Adressbuch muß einhal händisch heruntergeladen werden (im Karteireiter 'Import/Export'), danach kann sie zum Synchronisieren ausgewählt werden.
Obwohl ich die Daten für remote-Synchronisierung korrekt eingegeben habe, bekomme ich Fehlermeldungen wie 'illegal credentials'.
Möglicherweise wird das Passwort nicht korrekt gespeichert. In der Datei 'prefs.js' muß die Variable 'signon.rememberSignons' auf 'true' stehen. (Vor dem edieren Thunderbird beenden oder die Erweiterung about:config verwenden!)
Warum wird ssh/scp nicht unterstützt?
Ich kann nur Protokolle unterstützen die Thunderbird anbietet. ssh/scp gehören leider nicht dazu.
Wenn ich Adressbücher mit ftp downloaden will, bekomme ich die Fehlermeldung 'Protokoll nicht verfügbar (17)'.
Dies scheint ein spezielles Problem mit der angepassten Thunderbird-Version von ubuntu zu sein. Abhilfe: Das originale Thunderbird von mozilla.org installieren!
 

FAQ

I'm synchronizing several computers, but after a download only the last uploaded changes are visible.
Addressbooks Synchronizer is not a real synchronizing tool! It justs exchanges the addressbook files as a whole. Therefore the last upload will overwrite all previous uploads.
I've choosen an addressbook for synchronization and uploaded it onto the server. But on other computers, i can't choose this addressbook for synchronization because it doesn't appear in the list.
An addressbook has to be already available on the local computer before it can be choosen for download. Please do an initial download on the 'import/export'-tab.
I'm sure, the data for remote synchronization is correct. Nevertheless i get the errormessage 'illegal credentials' (or similar).
Sometimes, passwords are not store correctly. Please check, that the value 'signon.rememberSignons' is set to 'true' in your prefs.js. (Be sure to terminate thunderbird before editing the file or use the extension about:config.)
Could you please support ssh/scp?
Sorry, but i can only support protocols, which are supported by Thunderbird. And ssh/scp aren't.
When downloading addressbooks with ftp i get the errormessage 'protocol not available (17)'.
This seems to be a problem with the customized thunderbird from ubuntu. Please consider installing the original thunderbird from mozilla.org
