    Here is a quick cheat sheet I wrote for our users, it should give you a fair idea of how to setup Thunderbird.
    It does not explain all the possible features and combinations.
    You will notice that you set up two Calendars, One for Calendar and one for Tasks, this is due to the way Zimbra stores entries for these features.

    Hope this helps


    Setup
    To operate with the a Zimbra Calendar Server you will need to add two add-ons, and configure 3 services.

    Required add-ons
    Lightning – for calendaring and tasks
    Zindus – for GAL and contact sync

    Services to add
    Zimbra Personal Calendar – Using Lightning
    Zimbra Tasks Calendar – Using Lightning
    Zimbra Global Address List and contacts – Using Zindus


    To add lightning
    Open Thunderbird
    Select the menu Tools>Add-ons
    Select Get Add-ons
    In the Search box, type “Lightning”
    Select Install for Lightning 1.4 (or later)
    Restart Thunderbird

    To add the Zimbra Calendar

    Select the menu Events and Tasks>Calendar
    Select the menu File>New>Calendar
    Select the button for On the Network
    Select Next
    Under the section Format: Select the button for CalDAV

    In the Location field enter:-
    http://zimbraserver.domain/dav/email@domain/Calendar

    Note: replace email@domain with your email address

    Select Next
    Give a name to your calendar. One that makes sense to you, eg Office, Zimbra, Work etc
    Chose a color for the calendar entries
    Ensure the “Show Reminders” is checked
    Select your normal email address in the “E-Mail” box
    Select Next
    Select Finish
    When/If requested to authenticate, use your email address and password


    To add Zimbra Tasks
    Select the menu Events and Tasks>Calendar
    Select the menu File>New>Calendar
    Select the button for On the Network
    Select Next
    Under the section Format: Select the button for CalDAV
    In the Location field enter:-
    http://zimbraserver.domain/dav/email@domain/Tasks

    Note: replace email@domain with your email address

    Select Next
    Give a name to your Task calendar. One that makes sense to you, eg Tasks, Todo etc
    Chose a color for the Task entries
    Ensure the “Show Reminders” is checked
    Select your normal email address in the “E-Mail” box
    Select Next
    Select Finish

    When/If requested to authenticate, use your email address and password that you configured earlier.

    To add the Zindus add-on
    Open Thunderbird
    Select menu Tools>Add-ons
    Select Get Add-ons
    In the Search box, type “zindus”
    Select Install for Zindus 0.8.38 (or later)

    To add the Zimbra Address book (GAL)

    Select the menu Tools>Zindus
    In the Zindus Configuration Settings box
    Select Add
    In the Sync With section, select Zimbra
    In the Login Details section
    Server URL: http://zimbraserver.domain
    Email Address: youremail@domain
    Password : your password
    Click on Test connection. You should get a successful login message returned.
    For the Global Address List (GAL):
    Select Yes
    Select OK

    In the settings box
    Select Sync Now
    Once the Sync has completed, Select OK
