On Ubuntu 21.10, Thunderbird 91 does not support movemail (Unix Mailspool) accounts:
Removed support for movemail
Support for movemail has been removed. Please set up an IMAP or POP3 account to access your email instead.
Existing Mail Account
Previously, I was using
exim4 and Thunderbird to view the output of my cron jobs. I would like to continue to use Thunderbird, but all the previous answers I have been able to find relied on its
- How can I access system mail in /var/mail/ via thunderbird?
- How are administrators supposed to read root's mail?
- How do I read local email in thunderbird?
- Using Movemail with Thunderbird on Ubuntu
Receive the cron output for both
$USER@hostname, although if these are separate accounts that would be acceptable.
Must be local to my machine without the need for an external network at all. I do not want to forward my cron output to a remote server.
Must have individual messages for each cron job (as with movemail).
Must use Thunderbird 91. I am aware that other clients support movemail.
What are my options for viewing
cron output in Thunderbird 91?
If running a full-blown IMAP or POP3 server is the only way, what is a robust, secure, and low-maintenance setup for serving cron output locally?
Edit: as Ubuntu 21.10 was released on October 14, this question is now on-topic.
