mozilla-thunderbird-3.0.3 with lightning and enigmail on Gentoo x86_64

I´m running gentoo linux x86_64 on my dell laptop. Today mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-3.0.3 was aviable in portage and so I upgraded, but there was no lighning for Thunderbird 3 in the portage. Since I need the calendar in thunderbird I searched the web for a solution. After short time I found it in google groups.

On Gentoo just do this:

emerge =mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-3.0.3 =x11-plugins/enigmail-1.0.1-r1

Download the lightning.xpi from and install it via Tools->Addons.

Now have fun with your new Thundebird.

Best regards xexplorer
