With CalDAV you can store your calendars on Runbox’ servers using calendar apps on your computer or smart phone.

To use Runbox CalDAV, set up a new account in your Calendar client with your Runbox username and password and dav.runbox.com as Server Address.

Below you will find setup instructions for recommended calendar clients.

OS X Calendar

  1. Go to Calendar > Add Account… > Add CalDAV Account…
  2. Select Account Type: Manual
  3. Username: Enter your Runbox username.
    • If you use your own domain name, the username format is you@domainyouown.tld.
  4. Password: Enter your Runbox password.
  5. Server Address: Enter https://dav.runbox.com/
    • Note: Include the trailing slash.

Usage notes

  • Click View > Refresh Calendars to see changes made on the server by other clients, including alerts.

Thunderbird Lightning

Because Lightning is only a subscription service it can’t discover the addresses to the calendars by itself. Therefore you first need to use a browser to log into the CalDAV service and discover the addresses which you can then put into Lightning.

  1. Go to https://dav.runbox.com in a web browser and enter your Runbox username and password when prompted. The username format is username@domain.tld.
  2. Click Calendars.
  3. On the next screen, click the numeric link under Nodes (this is your account’s UID).
  4. On the following screen, you should see 3 links of type “Collection, Calendar”. These correspond to calendars named Home, Work, and Tasks. Click the first link.
  5. Copy the entire URL from your browser’s address bar into the Location field in Lightning.

Now you are ready to set up Lightning. Open it and follow these steps:

  1. Right-click in the left pane in Calendar
  2. Click New Calendar…
  3. Select On the Network.
  4. Select CalDAV.
  5. Location: Enter https://dav.runbox.com/
  6. Click Continue.
  7. Enter your Runbox username and password.
    • If you use your own domain name, the username format is you@domainyouown.tld.

Your Runbox calendar should now be shown in the left pane.
