Thunderbird 3.0 in Win 7 Lightning
I upgraded to Win 7 ans my Outlook 2002 no longer functions. I downloaded Thunderbird 3.0 from Mozilla and tried to installed the Lightning add-In. I clicked the Run Button, Reopened Thunderbird, navigated to the Tools menu to activate the Lightning Ad-In.

Lightning was not there, or at least, not visible, hence a failed process. Has anyone found a solution for this problem?

lightning 0.9 version only works with thunderbird 2
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/2313

Some comment about the nightlys working - but when i researched before xmas could not get it to work

On this link https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thu...313/developers it mentions V1 to work with TB3

have a read here 13 dec Entry - http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/calendar/

http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/calen...ease_cand.html

Link to the ftp site for the beta release
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/calendar/l....0b1rc1/win32/

lightning_all = all language
the sub directory has just english

EDIT
Just installed and it worked - its in thunderbird and I got a reminder from when I had it set up in TB2 ... so just need to try it all out
Version i used was just lightning.xpi - thats in the directory on the FTP link
