To have access to Outlook’s meeting request and calendar features, you need to install and configure two addons for Thunderbird.
Once the two addons are installed, create a new calendar, select Microsoft Exchange 2007/2010 Use the following settings:
Server URL: https://pod51050.outlook.com/ews/exchange.asmx Primary email address: email@example.com Username: userid@.ads.qub.ac.uk Domain name: [Leave this blank] Share Folder Id: [Leave this blank]
These details are for Queen’s University Belfast, something similar should work with other organizations.
If you are having trouble connecting, check the Server URL. I identified the address by checking the URL bar when I was logged into office365’s outlook web-app. I have been unable to reproduce this, if you find a way to identify which pod you are using please let me know.
