I am very pleased with Owl. For over ten years, I have had a BT Connect account for the local community magazine of which I am the editor. Bt have converted it to a Microsoft Exchange account configured *as if* the user were a BT employee. Without Owl I would no longer be able to access or use this account with Thunderbird. And for a very modest annual fee OWL is doing its job just fine.

Thanks so much for this positive report! I'm happy that Owl is helping you out. I wish you well with your magazine!

Generally works well.
The only problem is trying to send receipt confirmation, always failing

Loving that extension. While it worked great for a long time it suddenly is not able to login anymore.

It definitively has to do with a change made by my organisation as they enforce more and more things.

I tried https://addons.thunderbird.net/de/thunderbird/addon/owl-for-exchange/reviews/1173697/ but it does not work for me.

What works for me is:

when it happens that it asks for the MFA token (which fails then) I abort and on the user selection screen I choose "Logout and Forget". then logging in again and it works incl MFA token.

This happens when I have left thunderbird open for longer times (I usually do not close it the whole week). Maybe that helps someone else..

Mostly works, but Owl for Exchange does not handle well being regularly logged out (presumably due to my organization's aggressive security policy).

Problems:
1. I regularly have to click through a cumbersome log in process. After being logged out, Owl for Exchange presents a token challenge screen in a Thunderbird tab. If this form sits too long and times out, then to re-establish a connection I must (1) enter a purposefully wrong token code, (2) acknowledge the login failure, (3) log in with username/password, (4) enter token code. If I enter a correct token code at step 1, then Owl for Exchange does not correctly re-establish the connection and I must quit & restart Thunderbird to make it work again.
2. I have lost draft messages several times. If you try to send a message after a connection was lost, it can be lost if you quit and restart Thunderbird. Be sure to copy/paste unsent messages to a text editor before quitting Thunderbird.
3. I regularly have to restart Thunderbird to have Owl re-establish its connection.

Make sure you use Owl for Exchange for a while before paying; some problems only appear after extended use. There is no support.

Since 115 Supernova it's extremely slow and laggy. Opening a new mail sometimes takes 2-5 seconds, and occasionally disappears before appearing again. Deleting mails takes 2-3s.
It's just not a great user experience right now.

Owl extension is the perfect tool on linux to access exchange-based mailing.
Until TB release 102, the addons have worked great, no problem with speed and operation.

After TB released 115, the OWL started to work horribly slow and make TB almost unusable. For example, switching between folders takes 1-2 minutes and TB seems to be frozen. The downloading messages (3-5k in a folder) lasts forever.
Rolling back to TB102 solved the issue. Any suggestion what could be the problem?
Same experience on Win10 and RHEL9 workstation (Ubuntu 22 as well )

Hey 007, Thanks for the praise. I'm surprised to hear that Owl is slow for you since TB 115. I haven't observed that so far. If you would like to work with us to find the cause and maybe a fix, could you please write to our support owl.support beonex.com? (Please reference this message here in the support mail, so that support can process it accordingly.) If you could send us a specific reproduction, so that we can observe the issue, that would help a lot. We can then look at it in engineering and see whether we can reproduce it and maybe fix it.

Works fairly well thanks. For the future, in my opinion, supporting unified folder is a priority. I am one of the users who employs them and at the moment (like it happens for saved searches) any other folder apart from, e.g. inbox, is not retained after restarting Thunderbird. My two cents.

Great add-ons,
just need an update to the new release 121 ASAP.

Hi, I'm sorry, but we don't support beta versions of Thunderbird, only official stable releases.

Truly an indispensable add-on for Thunderbird. I'd say EWS support is mature enough that it ought to be made the default option when configuring new accounts with Owl - performance is great and mail, contacts and calendar are working fantastically through both my Outlook.com account for home and on-premises Exchange account for work.

Hey! Thank you for that praise. We will consider to make EWS the default.

Thanks for the reply! I understood that it might take a few days!
However, the owl subscription will be expired in coming3-4 days, will it get it through?

The OWL is nearly perfect add-on for Thunderbird email client app. Moreover, there is not any other comparable alternative functional on Linux. So, thanks for OWL!!!

Have used this for years. It gives access for my wife for her work email from home, using Ubuntu and Thunderbird.

I just want send a huge THANK YOU for Owl. My organization's 365 tenant is so locked down that it's virtually unusable if you're not using a domain joined system. Owl solves a whole bunch of problems and it's honestly way faster than "New Outlook". Thank you!

I works, but has a few bugs:

1) The "readed" status doesn´t get updated until you switch to another folder and come back;

2) The folder structure looks like being recreated everytime we start Thunderbird. So, if we save a search as seach folder, we Thunderbird is restarted, the search forlder is gone.

If you only want to read your emails, it works.

And theres no support.

Owl is indeed primarily made to read and write email, for people who cannot access their mail otherwise (not counting web mail).

Saved searches indeed are not supported. There are a number of other Thunderbird and Office365 features that we do not support. We decided early on that it's not feasible to support 100% of all Thunderbird *and* Office365 features. Please rate us based on what features we advertize and promise.

We do have a support team and support email address. However, they work on a best-effort basis. If you ask for very deep technical questions, they may not be able to help. The same is true when you call any big company.

As long as the authentication with your email server works, everything else works as advertised and very well. But auth can be tricky and sometimes breaks, so I'm deducting one star.

For anyone who has struggled with getting OWL to work with their Outlook.com e-mail: if your Microsoft account has 2FA enabled, you must create an "app password" (via https://account.live.com/) for OWL to use for authentication, rather than using your actual account password. Apparently, OWL does not play well with the 2FA process.

Această recenzie este pentru o versiune anterioară a suplimentului (1.2.3). 

I've already answered you in your previous rating.

FWIW, Owl supports 2FA for Office365 out of the box, without "app passwords".

Came back to upgrade my review to 5 stars. After the Thunderbird stuff-up my Office account eventually reappeared but Sent emails were disappearing. Emailed a query to the developer who replied within hours to look in Account settings>Folders and Copies. (I had wrongly been looking for a fix in Sent Items>Properties). Sure enough, sent items were getting stored in the native Thunderbird 'Local Folders' sent folder. Redirected that to my Office sent folder and all is good again.

Excellent support — as usual!

The breakage caused by changes in TB v115.3.2 was quickly fixed by Owl v1.2.3, and I received a timely response to the support e-mail I sent to Beonex.

For a few horrible minutes, I thought I was going to have to start using Windows or the Outlook Web UI. When I saw that others had the same problem with 115.3.2, I was confident that it was TB's fault and Owl devs would quickly find a fix for it. They did.
