Geez, I asked this question 3 different ways and still, no solution. I used to get email reminders using Thunderbird email client with the Lightening Calendar add on. Now I don't get these reminders. Was this feature removed? If so, PLEASE let me know so I can get on with my life.

This is the only post I have noticed.

What version of Thunderbird and Lightning?

The only calendar I have that can send email reminders is my Google calendar.

There appears to be a bug where the user can set a reminder prior to the event, chose Send an Email as a Reminder Action, Save and Close the event, then the Reminder Action is changed to "The moment the event starts".

I did get an email, the moment the event starts, with the test event I created.

You might want to file a bug report. I don't see one in this list. ... d=13920917

So the previous was for development versions of Thunderbird, Lightning and Provider for Google Calendar. :oops:

Using the current versions Thunderbird 52.5.0, Lightning 5.4.5 and Provider for Google Calendar 3.3, the email reminders work for me as expected.
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630
Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5
