Zimbra is NCF's webmail system.

Zimbra's calendar and contacts follow the CalDAV and CardDAV standards. For contacts, see Zimbra: Thunderbird Contacts.

To install the Zimbra calendar in older versions of the Mozilla Thunderbird email client , you need to install the "Lightning" calendar addon. Go to Tools -> Addons, and search for "Lightning". For later versions it is already included with Thunderbird.

Once the Lightning calendar component is installed, the steps to add your Zimbra calendar are as follows:

1. Click on File -> New -> Calendar

2. Select On the Network

3. Click Next

4. Select CalDAV

5. Enter the following into the Location: https://mail.ncf.ca/dav/ACCOUNT_ID@ncf.ca/CALENDAR_NAME

Enter your NCF accountID where it says ACCOUNT_ID, and the Zimbra calendar you wish to add where it says CALENDAR_NAME.
eg., in my case, to add the default Zimbra calendar, which is named simply "Calendar", I would enter:
https://mail.ncf.ca/dav/al178@ncf.ca/Calendar

6. Check Cache - so your calendar contents will be accessible even if you're offline

7. Click Next

8. Give it a name, eg. Zimbra: Calendar, and choose a color - I like blue!

9. If you have more than one email account setup, you'll also want to tell it which one to associate with that calendar

10. Click Next
