Help me .... please...
valerie_tux is right. I use Suse myself with wine version 20050111, which I compiled from the sources. I also had problems with the Suse packages. Download the sources from sourceforge
and see if you still have the same problem.

I have never seen any, but there's really nothing to it.
What you need:
i. The POP3 (or IMAP) task must be enabled and started on your domino server. If you are the Administrator just add the task to your notes.ini for the domino server so that it starts each time your Domino server starts.
ii. You should know your internet username. Typically if your notes name is 'John Doe/WWCorp', your internet username can be any of 'John Doe' or 'jdoe' (If jdoe is your short username, it could very well be 'doej'), or the full "John Doe/WWCorp". Of course you could have another username. The Administrator should know.
ii. You must have your internet password set on your person document in the Domino Directory. You cannot authenticate without it, and this is not necessarily the same as your Lotus Notes ID password.
Your Domino enviroment might be setup to use SSL connections. I am assuming that this is not
If you are already using thunderbird for other email accounts then you are most likely to have already set a default smtp server for outgoing mail. Thunderbird will use that default smtp server for your account. Nothing stops you however from adding another smtp server. If you need help setting this up as well let me know.
Then to configure Thunderbird for IMAP / POP.
1. Fire up your Thunderbird and go to Edit -> Account Settings...
2. Click on the 'Add Account' button, select 'Email Account' and click next.
3. Enter Your Name. This sets the outgoing name on emails you will send with this account.
4. Enter your internet email address 'firstname.lastname@example.org' the one you use on the domino system and Click next.
5. Select IMAP / POP as your incoming server type.
6. On the incoming server field, enter either the IP address of your domino server, or its hostname.
7. If you want to have separate folders on the local machine for this account, uncheck the 'Use Global Inbox' and click next.
8. On the 'incoming user name' field you need to enter either your full name, or short userid that you use to authenticate with the server. Typically if your notes name is 'John Doe/WWCorp', you can enter 'John Doe' or 'jdoe' (If jdoe is your short username, it could very well be 'doej'), or you can enter the full "John Doe/WWCorp" and click next.
9. On the Account name, give it any name you want like "Domino Account" or whatever.
10. Click next, verify the details and click finish.
If you are using POP, then on the account you have just created, click on server settings, and make sure you set the other preferences, like most importantly, if you want to leave a copy of the mail on the server. If choose not to leave a copy, you will not be able to see your email from Lotus Notes after you pop it.
After that you are done. Exit the Account settings window. You can now click on the "Get Email" button to download emails from the server. It will ask you for your password if it has connected successfully.
