ExQuilla for Microsoft Exchange

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on works flawlessly and impressively. However, it is crazy to expect users to pay for some code that simply connects you to your free webmail account!

While I respect and appreciate the work that the programmer has put into this project, I can't bear to think of myself coughing up money on such a service, and I am offended by the thought of a fee for something like this even existing. It sets a bad precedent. Perhaps by itself the fee seems like "not that much," and one could try to justify it in terms of time, labor, etc, but when added to the ever-growing list of subscriptions/paid apps that we all use, it really adds up! and $10 per year? I'm sorry but, are you kidding me?

Evolution e-mail client already provides this service for free by default. I'm not so lazy that I can't just use Exchange Webmail. Although the add-on works perfectly, there is no way I'm going to begin to consider paying for something like this, and moreover I cannot support a fee structure for such a simple service out of principle.

ExQuilla for Microsoft Exchange

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FINALLY! YES!! I've been trying forever to get my Exchange e-mail account to sync in Thunderbird. I tried every option, every setting, and was constantly frustrated. To my great surprise, this plugin worked PERFECTLY and only took a minute to sync the whole account.

All I did was install the plugin, go to Tools --> ExQuilla for Microsoft Exchange --> Add Exchange Account. Then I used the Auto Detection options and let it do the configuration itself. It did everything right. The only thing I had to input myself aside from name/pass/email was the domain name--so it might be helpful to know that.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This was on Windows 8. Solved a very difficult and frustrating problem for me, in seconds.
