Instead of the numeric ID you can also use the Calendar folder Name as it
appears in IMAP:




We're working on improving this by adding an option to the web client where
one can get the absolute URL to a certain address book or calendar resource.

As an intermediate solution you can enable the web-browser access to iRony
by adding the following to /etc/httpd/config.d/iRony.conf

  SetEnv DAVBROWSER true

and restart Apache. Then point your browser to http://example.com/iRony/
and authenticate with valid user credentials. Now you can browser through
your calendars and address books and copy the direct URLs to be used in
Thunderbird from there.

Kind regards,
