Hi all,
as long as Lightning is still the kind of buggy mess that it is, i
have helped my users with the following add-ons:
- lightning 1.9.1 from nightly (1.9 fails to delete deleted events)
- StartupMaster 1.3 for managing passwords
and most important
- Saved Password Editor 2.7 for adding non-imap and non-smtp urls to
StartupMaster, something, that TB wont do for you.
Use the saved Password Editor to add https://your.server.tld as host
and put the full url to the calendar in the second field. See attached
pic. Add user and pw, save and go.

Works ok so far (3 weeks and counting)
I want to emphasize, that sogo is NOT the problem, it's all Lightning.
On windows, i've been using emclient for the last few weeks, it'
pretty ok and never finds fault with the calenders on sogo.
