Thunderbird on the Raspberry Pi

Hi guys! Today I found out how to install Mozilla Thunderbird (a program for answering your emails, compatible with various mail services including Outlook.com) onto the Raspberry Pi (it will only work on a Pi 2 and Pi 3). Here is how!

wget https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-security/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+build/11078054/+files/thunderbird_45.4.0+build1-0ubuntu0.14.04.1_armhf.deb

sudo dpkg -i thunderbird_45.4.0+build1-0ubuntu0.14.04.1_armhf.deb

Then click Menu/Internet and then click Thunderbird Mail. I logged in with my Outlook.com account and it worked! Unlike IceDove which just said I had typed my password incorrectly (when I hadn’t, honestly). Wow! So I can guarantee that Thunderbird works with Outlook.com. It should work with GMail and other modern email as well! So you can install it onto your Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 using this guide!

Enjoy!
