If you want to install it manually:

Code:
$ wget http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/t/thunderbird/thunderbird_60.9.0-1~deb8u1_armhf.deb
# dpkg -i thunderbird_60.9.0-1~deb8u1_armhf.deb


Debian 8 is supported till June 30 2020. If you want to track security updates for thunderbird, you have to figure out how to add exactly this deb package to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.


Yep, that works for me  Smile

Installed as per wget command above, and it works just fine. I've locked the installed version until I figure out the correct entry in sources.list for tracking Debian 8 updates.

Thank you for the info

Tried Evolution and it works as does geary , but I prefer to stick with thunderbird as I use it across most of my devices.

I think I'll switch to Evolution for now. Partly also because I'll need some of evolution's back end to add my CalDav calendar accounts anyway. I was trying Claws Mail, but its insistence on creating IMAP folders for "Queue" is annoying. I hope Thunderbird gets fixed in the future. I too prefer using it on devices where it can be used.

What version of Ubuntu/Mate Thunderbird did you load and where did you find it?

Pretty sure I just did
Code:
apt install thunderbird

Its an older version, but precompiled for ARMH. I've moved back to the default OS, so no more thunderbird.

Had the same issue with stock Debian, though in trying it on an SD card created with Debian installer script worked, odd but I am still distro hopping, so just reporting my findings.
