    So, I may purchase a Pre for my wife.

    Her calendar and contacts are at work and they use Thunderbird.

    I'm having her set-up a Gmail account but need to make it easy for her to sync Thunderbird with her new Gmail.

    I've read a couple explanations about importing and using csv files. I think that's more than she's going to want to do and I'm wondering if there's anything she can download or use that will simply sync her calendar and contacts between her Thunderbird and new Gmail.

    I'd appreciate any links, as I'm trying to put together a simple 1 -2 -3 step for her to do at work.

    Google and Thunderbird make a good pair, with a few add-ons.

    There are lots of add-ons for Thunderbird, similar to Firefox. One of them is is Lightning, which provides a calendar. She may be using this already, but if not: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/2313

    Addon for Google calendar sync: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/4631

    Add-on for Google contacts sync: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/7307

    The google contacts sync addon suggested by jbg7474 doesn't seem to install into Thunderbird 3.

    I ended up using the Zindus addon to sync Thunderbird contacts with Google and it seems to work well.

    Hey pzykman,

    Did the xml Zindus added into Google contacts affect how the Palm syncs?
