Install Thunderbird in Ubuntu, Rock Your E-mails in GNU/Linux With this "BIRD"!

Both Firefox and Thunderbird are one of the most widely used applications in all sorts of operating systems. Everyone knows about Firefox, you know, it's a... wild animal... :(,  but for some reason, even some of the major Linux distributions tend to drop one of the most powerful e-mail clients available for GNU/Linux which is the Thunderbird.

This is not a criticism.. and I'm pretty sure they have their reasons... anyhow, Ubuntu does not come with it. In fact they decided to ship their OS with another pretty good e-mail client called Evolution. So, if you want to give a try for Thunderbird in Ubuntu 10.10 or 10.04, etc then simply open your Terminal and issue the below command to install it.
sudo apt-get install thunderbird
You can also install Thunderbird using the graphical software manager that comes with Ubuntu. To do so go to, Applications -> Ubuntu Software Center and search for "Thunderbird" and follow the instructions on the screen.

Although it does come with its own excellent help documents but if you're looking for a more user friendly, very recent "Guide" then you should read this PDF guide and this part 2 (written by Jim McCullough) as well.
