I installed Thunderbird and run it from a folder in my-applications.

I've got a problem now though where the account settings and data aren't saved with each exit from Puppy.

I'll go back to Sylpheed for now. Any suggestions re Thunderbird?

Thanks, but I had the program working and the accounts set up.

The problem is that each time I fire up Puppy the accounts data, folders, mail, etc is gone, and I'm confronted with the new account wizard to start all over again.

It works for me. I don't know why it works or why yours doesn't. Here is a step-by-step how I done it:

1) Downloaded Thunderbird for Linux from mozilla.org

2) Extracted the thunderbird???.tar.gz to /root/thunderbird

3) Using ROX I dragged /root/thunderbird/thunderbird to the desktop to make a shortcut. Then using ROX I changed the icon to the thunderbird icon.

4) Then I setup the account settings.

----------

System info:

Puppy version 1.0.2
type 1 install
icewm window manager

-----------

The data was restored when I ran Thunderbird from the root directory instead of my-applications.
