Summary0000065: Birthday field(s) are mixed up during sync
Description

To overcome the limitations of Thunderbird using "MoreFunctionsForAddressBook":
http://nic-nac-project.org/~kaosmos/morecols-en.html
enabling extended fields like birthday, photo, etc.

Synchronizing the birthday fields is very weird: Entering "01" "01" "1971" in the respective fields for "Day", "Month" and "Year" in Thunderbird is correctly synchronized with eGroupWare as "01.01.1971" in the birthday field, fine!

The other way round, entering "01.02.2003" in the birthday field in eGroupWare gets synchronized to Thunderbird as "20030201T000000Z" in the field for "Year". "Day" and "Month" fields are empty.

It seems the birthday date is not split up into day, month, year as Thunderbird expects it.

So any change synchronized into Thunderbird breaks the contents of the birthday fields. This renders the sync of the birthday rather useless. Would be great if this could be fixed! Thanks!
