Hello again,

I found a workaround which seems to work for me:
Our Mailserver handles the canonical addresses ( ) as aliases to mailboxes named after the username.
Fortunately it accepts and delivers mail to

just as well.
So if I just change my global addressbook to contain it works for me.

Nonetheless I would prefer to store the "official" addresses in the address book, so I'm still looking forward to getting an answer to my original question...

Hello everybody,

I am just in the process of deploying SOGo 1.3.5a (just upgraded) with
authentication via SQL, Thunderbird 3.1.7, Lightning 1.0b2.104i, SOGo
Connector 3.104 and SOGo Integrator 3.104.

After a lot of struggling with the configuration almost everything
works, but free/busy using Thunderbird still doesn't.
Using the webinterface everything is fine but the free/busy interface in
TB just flashes (almost to fast to see) existing appointments of
prospective attendees and then always shows them as free.
If I explicitly type in the email address as

of the canonical

as used in our system and
returned by the address book (SQL), it works.

Interestingly, for users with MailDomain (used to
implement a simple ressource scheduling by piping appointment
invitations to a script which automatically accepts invitations using
curl) it works... The only differences with these users (as far as I can
tell) are the mail domain, and the fact that our ressource users do not
have an IMAP account.

I tried different settings for SOGoMailDomain ('',
'' and empty string), but to no avail.

Can anyone give me a hint about what's wrong here?

Our configuration:
