Hi I am having problems with Tiscali mail account in Ubuntu 9.10.
I must have made a mistake in the configurations and I want to check them and run through them again but how do I do this in Ubnutu.9.10.
I have downloaded the OS onto the HD if this helps.
Works OK in Vista.

Ubuntu 9.10, but there is Ubuntu Software Centre.
Clicking on that reveals various options of soft ware and a search box, I typed in Thunderbird and it came up with four alternatives, Highlighting and clicking on all five came back with Not Available in the Current Data.
Licence: Open Source Free.

So problem still remains, thank you both for your time and research.

Have you tried the Forums yet?

You should pick the top one that says Mozilla Thunderbird Mail/News and install that one.

608 I will join the forums today for advice and thanks for the tip.

I have now found out why I could not receive my mail from Tiscali to Ubuntu.

I was trying to receive mail from the desktop as I had a strong wireless connection and assumed thats how it worked.

During a search this morning I tried againg to access my acount witth Firefoox running in the background.

I opened my Ubunt account from the top tool-bar clicked send/receive button and all my mail from my Tiscali account down loaded to Ubuntu.
