Thunderbird 3

Filed under: Google, Mozilla — tuxicity @ 7:19 pm

The Thunderbird3 package has arrived in Archlinux, and makes Thunderbird2 instantly obsolete.

When I started Thunderbird3 it asked me 3 (three) questions.
  1. How do you want your name displayed
  2. Whats your E-Mail adress
  3. Whats the password, with a tic box for remembering password.

After that Thunderbird probed and detected my Gmail settings, including imap, ssl and what not

And thats all I had to do to set up my (Gmail) account.
Thunderbird3 rocks! , use it.


  1. I experienced this yesterday, when I first tried it out. It doesn’t get any easier than this!

  2. hi,

    i am using ubuntu and find very difficult in configuring gmail in Evolution.

    after reading this, i downloaded thunderbird just using ‘apt-get install thunderbird’, and setting up a gmail account was just selecting Gmail account and entering username.

    that’s it. thunderbird really rocks…

  3. Ola! Tuxicity,
    Neat Post FELA stands for the Federal Employers Liability Act, which was passed in 1908. The act was initially enacted in 1906, but it was quickly thrown out by the U.S. Supreme Court, being declared an unconstitutional act. The FELA was the federal answer to many states’ own laws and demands for federal regulation for railroad workers and their safety on the job. Because of the increasing number of workers that were taking jobs on the U.S. railroads, legislators felt that there was a need to ensure that employers were held responsible for worker injuries and deaths.
