    I think there may be a workaround to allow the sync with Thunderbird. It should be able to import and export a Character separated Text file. If so you can use the ASCII sync option in Desktop Manager 4.2. You would have to set up the correct mapping and all but once that's done it shouldn't be many extra steps and would allow you to sync.

    Yesss! Yes I know how to do it! ^.^

    I have been searching and SEARCHING for a way to do it as I am a complete fan of Thunderbird and Blackberry and didn't want to sacrifice either in order to have an organised life haha! It's not the most smoothest method, but it gets it done in less than 5 mins

    This is just a quick outline, for details such as where I downloaded it all from, etc, please email me!

    You need to have:
    - Microsoft Outlook
    - A Schedule World account and add on for Thunderbird.
    Schedule World is an online server, I really don't get how it works, but it just 'works' so go with it
    - The Funambol add-on for Microsoft Outlook
    - And of course, Thunderbird and a Blackberry!

    What happens, once everything is set up, it goes like this:
    ("Entries" include: Address book, memo pad, calendar, tasks..etc.)

    Entries in Thunderbird are sync'd to Schedule World.
    Entries in Schedule World are sync'd to Outlook.
    Entries in Outlook are finally sync'd to Blackberry via the Desktop manager

    And vice versa!!!!!

    If this is what you're looking for, do email me on

    Only prob I've had with this is duplicate entries, grrr.

    Btw to my knowledge all of this is freeware, etc, and I don't think it has anything to do with mozilla :S
