Install

Those notes are for OpenSolaris only.
To install Thunderbird on OpenSolaris,
  • Download package from mozilla
  • e.g: bzip2 -d thunderbird.bz2
  • pfexec pkgadd -d ...
  • do a link:
    pfexec ln -s /opt/sfw/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird /usr/bin/thunderbird
    
  • Profile

    To share one's profile between a Windows and a Linux machine (actually, whatever OS !), a solution is to put the profile in a shared directory. To do so, launch thunderbird with the profilemanager option

    thunderbird -profilemanager
    

    and then, create a new profile & configure its directory.

    Gmail settings

    • pop.gmail.com, SSL always
    • imap.gmail.com, settings for Thunderbird
    • smtp.gmail.com, TLS always, port 587, with authentication
