Sogo is a bit of a dirty hack. At least on my linux and osx installations. It (mostly) syncs the addressbook, but therefore breaks calendar access. I can see events in lightning, but not edit any. Once sogo is uninstalled, the calendar is back to normal.
Help required with DaviCal + Thunderbird addressbook + Android sync
[In reply to]
I have given up on Thunderbird quite some time ago. Ubuntu up to 11.04 ships Thunderbird 3. For a good reason it would seem, as since 3.0 only moderate bugfixes have been done. I was hoping for some movement in terms of carddav for TB5 - still nothing. Basic things like email archiving are a big pain - still.
