CRM 2011: Thunderbird compatibility

Well, this one is a recurring question: is Microsoft CRM compatible with other email clients such as Thunderbird?

Well, the simple answer is “No sir”, but I’ve found myself thinking about creating a free plugin that will give the ability to convert emails in Thunderbird to CRM emails and to synchronize contacts (at least from the Thunderbird address book to CRM).

It is a very much anticipated development but I already have the skeleton, and thanks to Microsoft CRM 2011 REST feature, I think I might end-up getting things to work.

What do you think, would such a plugin be useful to you? Feel free to comment and give me advices Clignement d'œil
