I am unable to get Thunderbird to work with my exchange email account

I have tried a heap of different configurations including using ExQuilla with no success. I will provide the insrtuctions I received for accessing my account using outlook.
I hope you can help, as I find Thunderbird a great platform, and really don't want to go back to Outlook.
*Note – the instruction at step 5 is fairly important. It is easy to miss it and hit “check name”. Don’t – It’ll piss you off no end.
Let me know how you go.
Using Outlook via the Internet
If you are using Microsoft® Office Outlook® 2003, you can connect to the computer running Windows® Small Business Server through the Internet using the feature called RPC over HTTP. This means you can remotely access your server e-mail account from the Internet when you are working outside your organization's firewall. You do not need security-related hardware or software (such as smart cards or security tokens), and you do not have to establish a virtual private network (VPN) connection to the server.
Comparing RPC over HTTP and Outlook Web Access
When using RPC over HTTP to access your mailbox, you get the full functionality of Outlook 2003. For example, you can work offline, use Microsoft Office Word 2003 as your e-mail editor, and easily organize your mailbox.
To use Outlook via the Internet
Ensure that the following requirements have been met on the client computer:
Verify that the computer is running Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 or later
• Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
The version of the operating system and service pack is displayed under System. If you do not see a service pack version, there is no service pack installed.
Verify that Windows update Q331320 is installed on the computer (not required if you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later)
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then open Add or Remove Programs.
2. Under Currently installed programs, search for the item Windows XP Hotfix (SP2) Q331320.
3. If the item is not present, go to the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=18651) and follow the instructions to download and install it.
Verify that the computer is running Outlook 2003 or later
1. Open Outlook.
2. Click the Help menu, and then click About Microsoft Office Outlook. The version number appears at the top of the box.
Verify that the computer trusts the certificate used by the server
1. Open Internet Explorer, and then in the address bar type:
• If the certificate is trusted, a certificate warning does not appear. In this case, continue with step 1 under Ensure that you have an Outlook profile configured for the server.
• If the certificate is not trusted, a warning appears. Click View Certificate, click Install Certificate, and then follow the instructions.
Ensure that you have an Outlook profile configured for the server
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
• If you are viewing Control Panel in the default Category view, switch to Classic view, and then double-click Mail.
• If you are viewing Control Panel in Classic view, double-click Mail.
2. In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles. If your profile appears in the list, select your profile, click Properties, click E-mail Accounts, select View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next. If your profile does not appear, open Outlook and follow the instructions to create a profile before proceeding.
• If Microsoft Exchange Server does not appear in the list, the existing profile is not associated with a Microsoft Exchange Server e-mail account. Click Cancel, and then click Close. Continue with step 3 to add a profile.
• If there is an existing Microsoft Exchange Server profile, continue with step 3 under Configure the computer for RPC over HTTP.
3. Click Add. The New Profile dialog box appears.
4. In the Profile Name box, type a name for the new profile, and then click OK. The E-mail Accounts dialog box appears.
5. Under E-mail, select Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next. The Server Type dialog box appears.
6. Click Microsoft Exchange Server, and then click Next.
7. Continue with step 4 under Configure the computer for RPC over HTTP.
Configure the computer for RPC over HTTP
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
• If you are viewing Control Panel in the default Category view, switch to Classic view, and then double-click Mail.
• If you are viewing Control Panel in Classic view, double-click Mail.
2. In the Mail Setup dialog box, click E-mail accounts, click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
3. In the E-mail accounts dialog box, click Microsoft Exchange Server, and then click Change.
4. In the Microsoft Exchange Server box, type the local name of the Exchange server:
5. In the User Name box, type the user name that you use to log on to the Remote Web Workplace. Do not click Check Name.
6. In the Exchange Server settings page, click More Settings.
7. On the Connection tab, under Exchange over the Internet, select Connect to my Exchange mailbox using HTTP, and then click Exchange Proxy Settings. The Exchange Proxy Settings dialog box appears.
8. Under Use this URL to connect to my proxy server for Exchange, type the following URL:
9. Select Connect using SSL only, and then select Mutually authenticate the session when connecting with SSL.
10. In the Principal name for proxy server box, type the following text:
11. Select On slow networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP.
12. Under Proxy authentication settings, select Basic Authentication.
13. Click OK, and then click OK again. Click Next, and then click Finish. Click Close.
14. In the Mail dialog box, if Always use this profile is selected, choose the newly configured profile.
15. Open Outlook and type your Windows Small Business Server user name (in the format ALAEA\user name) and password. You can now work with your Outlook mailbox.

Sheesh. That looks hard. I think it will fall over at this point:
"Connect to my Exchange mailbox using HTTP" 'cos Thunderbird uses only the regular email protocols: POP, IMAP and SMTP.
Here (at work) we have in the past have had IMAP and SMTP enabled on our Exchange server so Thunderbird could then connect just like to any other regular internet-based service.
With the change here to outlook365/outlook 2010 I've had to switch to using DavMail which lets Thunderbird talk to the mail server using OWA.
I haven't (seriously) tried Exquilla. Whilst I have great respect for its author and some of his other add-ons, I saw no reason to use an add-on that required payment when DavMail works for free.

  • How do I get Thunderbird to work with Apple iCloud?

    I've tried everything and I can't get iCloud to work with Thunderbird.

    The problem was the two-step verification process with iCloud. Basically, if you want to use Thunderbird and iCloud together you have to generate an app specific password when you log into the Apple ID website. Here's a link that has the instructions. Hopefully this will spare someone out there the aggravation I went through before figuring this out:)

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.)
    Or this - Delete the account in Mail and then set it up again. Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Accounts   Tap on the Account, then on the red button that says Remove Account.

    all speakers make a noise when they are shown during the test correctly.

    type upmix

    Any ideas?

  • Unable to get Gnome-Keyring working with nm-applet

    Hi guys
    I've installed openbox and using NetworkManager/nm-applet to manage my network connections.
    I prefer it over other utils as it has good support for mobile connections etc.
    I'm using qingy as my login manager.
    I have added the following to /etc/pam.d/qingy
    auth optional /lib/security/pam_gnome_keyring.so
    session optional /lib/security/pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start
    and the following to /etc/pam.d/passwd
    password optional pam_gnome_keyring.so
    as per the network manager wiki http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Net … fter_login
    I have the following in my session login script:
    nm-applet --sm-disable &
    I think if I remember correctly, the Gnome keyring dialog popped up once or twice in the beginning, but now it never happens. nm applet now always requests my WPA key upon login.
    My intention is to have the key stored in gnome-keyring so that I don't have to enter it every time I log in.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi dieghen89
    Nice to know I'm not the only one pulling out hair over here
    I was playing around and did the following:
    1. Exit nm-applet completely
    2. $ gnome-keyring-daemon --start //I know that the daemon is running. --help states that it starts or initialize an already running daemon
    3. Run nm-applet again
    And the keyring dialog actually did pop up asking for the password to unlock it.
    Now I thought a quick-fix would be to add gnome-keyring-daemon --start to my startup script before nmapplet &
    But alas. doesn't work

  • Will iCloud work with a comcast email account?

    I have downloaded new OS on macbook pro, iOS 5 on iPhone....  all seems well.  I can see 2 accounts now in my mail client - 1 is the comcast account, then other iCloud.  Can I sync the emails from comcast with the iPhone?  Or does this funtion like MobileMe....  looking for sync funtion like my iCal.....

    The problem has been a long standing problem due to Comcast's use of POP for third-party mail applications. This means you can delete a Comcast message on your iPhone Mail app but it will still appear on your MacBook. Comcast will need to allow IMAP account management, and they have been reluctant to do this for years. IMAP alllows synchonizing of folders and trash among devices.
    The problem is out of Apple's hands. It also affects Android phones. You can install the Xfinity Mobile app to manage messages on the iPhone, and use the web-based access to manage the messages on the MacBook. That is the only way to permanently delete or move messages.

  • Does Mail (3.6) work with MS Exchange Server 2003?

    I'm struggling to get Mail to work with an exchange server.
    Apparently, from the company's FAQs, we can hook up an iPhone, but alas not Mail.
    With the iPhone directions, they talk about a "domain" field, which doesn't show up in Mail.
    Any tips or clues would be appreciated.

    I'm not entirely sure why this works now, but it does. Yay!
    My problem evolved such that I, when I sent out through a different outgoing server, a recipient would see the address of the outgoing address, e.g. if I was using the gmail servers it would look like [email protected], and not the [email protected]
    So as a work around I tested sending out messages with my [email protected] address in the Reply To field. That works.
    Strangely, a Sent mailbox with for my [email protected] has appeared. Even messages that I've sent out with nothing in the Reply To field indicate that they've come from my [email protected] address.
    Keys to making it work:
    • Set up the exchange address as an IMAP account (not an exchange account)
    • Use the above referenced source forge tool
    • Partner with the company's IT people for whatever assistance they can offer
    • Use a Reply To field with the exchange, if required

  • HT3748 since upgrading to Mountain Lion, my Mac Mail no longer works well w/exchange email; so, I have had to switch back to outlook. Now, how can I use outlook for mac's calendar and contacts with icloud?

    Since uprgading to Mountain Lion, my mac mail no longer works with my exchange email properly. I finally gave up and moved back to outlook for mac, but now my new issue is using outlook calendar and contacts with icloud; possible?

    Sorry but I'm really not to sure what I have. I'm not good with knowing my computer model. All I know is that its a MacBook running with Leopard. I got my computer last year so I suppose its fairly new. Is there a place on my computer where I can check to see what it is (sorry to be so dumb with my own mac)
    And everything else works fine. I love Safari. It's just my mail that doesn't work. Here's the message that pop up several times.
    "The MobileMe IMAP server “mail.mac.com” rejected the password for user “akcastaldo”
    Please re-enter your password, or cancel."
    The only problem here is, even though I enter my password it doesn't do anything. It makes that message go away for about 3-5 mins. After that it pops right back up. And I can't even go into my preference and change my email password. So I don't know what to do.

  • TS1347 My college cancelled my outlook/exchange email account because I graduated. Turns out all my contacts were saved to outlook and I didn't know, is there a way I can get them back without being able to restore the email account?

    Because I graduated, IT support at my college deactivated my email account with outlook/exchange. I wasn't aware, but all my contacts were saved to that account and now they are gone. I have tried to contact my college to see if they can restore it and they haven't responded so I am wondering if there is a way to get them back without having the exchange email account restored. I have looked on iCloud and there are nowhere near as many contacts as I should have saved there. Thanks in advance for your help!!!

    If you do not have the contacts accessible on a computer, iOS device or service like iCloud then they are gone unless you can get them from your school's IT department.

  • PLEASE HELP ME??? Lost itunes trying to downgrade back from 11.0 & unable to get itunes to work at all now..

    New Itunes setup is the worst one yet!!! I couldn't stand it, so I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling older versions, but now I am unable to get it to work in any version. I have uninstalled & reinstalled several times (trying this with multiple versions). Strange thing is that ever since I uninstalled 11.0 I have not been able to get any of the other versions to open at all.. Sometimes an error message box dings & pops up that says something about how to adjust the volume through your itunes, or unable to open file.. other times when I click on the icon it just does absolutely nothing. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME??? I'm going crazy without my music & I am panicking because I am afraid I may have lost all music (I have thousands & thousands of songs on there).. I'm hoping to find a way to reinstall an older version, but at this point if I can't find a way to bring back the old version, I'll take 11.0 if I absolutely have to (meaning if it's the only way to retrieve itunes without losing my entire library)

    Have latest version of iTunes installed and running. Also make sure you have internet access working and can access Apple websites. Also, make sure you don't have any entries in your hosts file referring to gs.apple.com....If your not sure about how to do that, go ahead and do the rest first. You can come back to that later.....Plug in phone. Put phone in DFU mode.(google put iphone in DFU mode for instructions) Then restore the phone in iTunes by highliting your device in the left column and click on the Restore button. The latest iOS version is 4.3.3. That's what iTunes will restore it to. When it's done restoring, iTunes will ask if you want to restore from a backup or setup as a new phone. I would use the Setup as a New Phone option. Once it's done, you should have a clean install of the iOS and an operating phone, as long as there are no hardware issues with it.

  • Unable to get Phone Dialer working

    Hello everyone,
    I have setup a brand new client. And I am unable to get the dialer working correctly.
    I have followed the directions here: Re: The Top10 most frequently asked questions and answers (FAQ) January 2009
    - Telephony service is started
    - Windows XP Phone and Modem settings correctly configured
    - Phone Dialer does work and does show the progress of the "manual" test call
    - Phone Dialer is running and minimized
    - SAP/b1 General Settings/Service is setup with an area code.. nothing needed for an outside line
    When I pull up a Business Partner and hover over a phone number, I hit CTRL+TAB and nothing happens... the next field is just highlighted and no dialing occurs.
    Any thoughts as to what I'm missing to get this working correctly?
    All input is welcome.

    Finally got this working. Please setup your dialer using these directions;
    - Telephony service is started
    - Windows Phone and Modem settings correctly configured with any required settings like area code or country
    - Run Phone Dialer (dialer.exe) and confirm it does work and does show the progress of a "manual" test call
    - Change SAP/b1 General Settings/"Service" is setup with an area code.. and outside line requirements
    Open SAP/b1 and hover your cursor over a phone number. When the "phone" icon is displayed, press "CTRL + double-click".
    The dialer should open and you should see the progres of your call.
    Good luck!

    Have you tried a soft-reset ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider if it appears), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.
