I think

they have different mail-storage file types so it could be difficult and require some sort of go-between.

Possible solution

I've been trying to figure this one out for a while. I use Outlook because of my Pocket PC, and Plaxo has been syncing my contacts between the two for a while, but I only recently found a potential solution for the calendars. So recently, in fact, I haven't even gotten it working yet, so it's just theoretical.

Basically, the idea is to use Google Calendar as a go-between. Outlook can sync with Google Calendar using gSyncit, and Lightning can sync with Google Calendar using the new extension Provider for Google Calendar.

It's a more complex solution than I'd prefer, but it should work (in theory). Plaxo claims they'll support Lightning eventually, but since Plaxo for Thunderbird is still in Beta, even *without* Lightning support, I'd say we have a while to wait.

Let me know if you can get this to work, I may not have a chance to try for a while yet.
