I run a nightly maintenance job on the computers in my lab to virus scan their Microsoft partitions and be sure their Linux partition is updated. The output goes into log files, which I want emailed to myself for review the next day so that I can fix any problems quickly.

Clicking a link in email is supposed to open the browser, but after a fresh install of Ubuntu Mint/MATE Thunderbird with Chromium-Browser does not open links at all. You are forced to copy the link, change to the browser, then paste the link to open it.
This actually worked:
In Thunderbird 11.0.1, it is simple, yet not intuitive:
- Go to Preferences (Menu Edit → Preferences).
- Click on the Attachments tab.
- In the Content Type and Action section set HTTPS, HTTP, and FTP to Use google-chrome (or other desired browser).
The other suggestions on the page did not work.
The Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail client is discussing refocusing their internal resources in a new direction and possibly relying more heavily upon the global community to provide leadership and innovation for the project. There is speculation this is motivated by a desire to drop Desktop software and code only for “cloud” (Internet server) based services. I am not comfortable with leaving all my private corporate e-mail on someone else’s “cloud” server as web mail, so I am not sure how I feel about this. TBird is included in most Linux Distros as the email client.
