I've been looking for a way to use my gmail contacts in Thunderbird.
GCalDaemon seems like the only available tool out there.

I'm used to working with Outlook, and how its contacts are managed. I
can go into my contacts/address book in my PST, and have ALL of the
information right there. The way that the Daemon is working is that
it will only look up someone's info if I explicitly type their name...

Any suggestions?
