One of the most critical tools for small to large scale organizations is communication and scheduling. Without these tools businesses would fail. Communication generally takes on the form of email. Scheduling usually takes on the form of a calendar. Both of these tools can be found in single applications that range from overly simple to overly complex. Many companies rely on Microsoft Outlook. There are those, however, that want to (for whatever reason) avoid Microsoft products. To that end there are plenty of alternatives. One such alternative is the Thunderbird mail client with the Lightning Calendar extension.
This Get Up To Speed is going to show you just how to use the combination of Thunderbird/Lightning to handle your email and calendaring.
