[Edit] Installation To have Thunderbird, install the mozilla-thunderbird package official repositories of Ubuntu (will install in English, read below the packages needed to put the Spanish). [Edit] Read POP mail that is not Not all email accounts allow you to download their messages using POP3 protocol. The best known is Lycos, which only allow it in Windows and payment. To use these accounts in Thunderbird, WebMail should install the extension with a specific extension to the mail service to use (Lycos, etc..). More information and help on this extension in its official website. A known problem for this extension are the ports. If you try to run with the default ports, the status will show us error. You only have to change the ports starting from 2000, for example, port 2000 POP, SMTP and port 2001 IMAP port 2002. It can be found in Server> Ports. Using Thunderbird 2 for POP – SMTP not required to change the default ports, except for GMail using SSL (995-587). For Yahoo!, Hotmail and Lycos use the default ports (110-25). For GMail, Hotmail and Yahoo do not need to use this extension, as these support the POP3 protocol. Furthermore, from Thunderbird 2 GMail account setup is automatic. [Edit] Languages By default, Thunderbird is in English. To translate it into other languages ​​(such as Spanish), we must install the corresponding packages from the official repositories. For Spanish in Spain: thunderbird-locale-en-gb For Spanish of Latin America: thunderbird-locale-es-ar. [Edit] Manually setting the language Sometimes it is impossible to translate Thunderbird installing these packages, which will proceed as follows: We go to the website and downloaded Mozilla Thunderbird Foundation for GNU / Linux in Spanish (if the browser locale is Spanish will detect directly). Unzip it, open a terminal and we type the following commands: We copy the files of the Spanish language: $ Sudo cp thunderbird / chrome / en-GB. * / Usr / share / mozilla-thunderbird / chrome / ATTENTION – In Ubuntu 9.04 and Thunderbird (20090817) the previous line does not work. It must be like going below $ Sudo cp thunderbird / chrome / en-GB. * / Usr / share / thunderbird / chrome We go to the folder where the files are stored languages: $ Cd / usr / lib / mozilla-thunderbird / chrome / ATTENTION – In Ubuntu 9.04 and Thunderbird (20090817) the previous line does not work. It must be like going below $ Cd / usr / share / thunderbird / chrome We disabled the English language: $ Sudo mv-US.manifest in-US.manifest.old Activate the Spanish language: $ Sudo ln-s .. /.. /.. / Share / mozilla-thunderbird / chrome / en-ES.manifest The differences between share and lib are correct, we all share lib installed and enabled we link what we want. Three. We launched the Thunderbird, you should now be in Spanish. [Edit] Migrating Thunderbird from XP We can migrate settings, mail, news, accessories, etc.. we have configured in Windows XP for use in Ubuntu. If you have installed the Windows disc: In windows go to C: \ Documents and Settings \ [User Name] \ Application Data \ Thunderbird \ Profiles and copy the folder are. This will be something like 5vcjydwk.default. We copy this folder and paste in Ubuntu $ Cp [Folder in windows]. Default / home / [user name] /. Thunderbird / Edit the file $ Nano / home / [user name] / .mozilla-thunderbird/profiles.ini We changed the line Path = [current name]. Default by Path = [Windows folder name]. Default If you have mounted the disk that contains Windows, you can simply link the folder instead of copying it (saving space): In Ubuntu you aa the same folder as the above explanation, only that it is C: \, but the folder is mounted windows, and create a link in the [Name]. default and place it in / home / [user name] /. thunderbird /. Now you must edit the file profiles.ini, changing the value of Path, which is linked folder. With this we have completed migration [Edit] See also Firefox [Edit] Similar applications Icedove Evolution KMail View more in category Mail Managers [Edit] External Links Wikipedia has an article on Thunderbird encyclopedic.
