Hi :)
"Evolution" is supposedly very much like "Outlook".  Evolution has Calendar and email as it's 2 
main things.

Unfortunately most distros ship with such ancient versions of it that it's difficult to get help if 
you ever need it.  Hopefully you can get the most recent version upstream somewhere like you would 
get LibreOffice from the LibreOffice website sometimes.  
Regards from
Tom :)

I rarely need to, but sometimes it would be quicker editing table properties or pasting html from 
another source.

There are two add-on for TB that let you edit HTML in the compose window.  Stationery, and Edit 
HTML.  I used to have them installed, but don't anymore.  I came to the conclusion the average 
user shouldn't need to do this.

I too use Thunderbird and Lightning, Lightning syncs with my gmail
calendar which syncs with my phone. So very useful and handles multiple
calendars (mine, works, the families).

On my Mac I use Thunderbird and the standard Mac calendar program synced
with my gmail calendars.

And yes, I would like improved html editing in Thunderbird, I don't find
it mangles anything but it would be be nice to be able to "edit source
html" so to speak when you want an easy tweak that ends up not so easy.

Mozilla use to have a project called Sunbird, which was the stand
alone version of Lightning, but it was dripped.  I may have a copy of
it somewhere.

Still if you have Thunderbird, there is no reason why could could not
download the Lightning add-on.  I have it on my desktop.

There are free stand alone appointment calendars for the Windows
environment, so there should be versions out there for your Mac OS X.

I use Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04, with the latest versions of Firefox
and Thunderbird, plus LO

I don't believe so, but there is a free & open-source alternative to MS
Outlook called Thunderbird. It is an e-mail client made by the same
who make the Firefox web browser and there is an addon available called
Lightning which adds on calendar & task support, giving you a full email
and cal / tasks support like you'd get in Outlook. I assume this is the
sort of thing you want, if not, don't hesitate to reply-all.

I'm asking this for a friend...

Is there any calendar software that will interface with LO or Open
much like MS Outlook works with MS Office?
