Thunderbird can be installed in most Puppies without the package manager.
Get the Thunderbird.tar.gz from the Mozilla site, double click on it and unpack it to /usr/lib.
Drag the thunderbird executable from /usr/lib/thunderbird to the desktop and start TB by clicking on that icon. TB will then establish /root/.thunderbird.
You might now setup your email accounts from scratch, or...
copy the content of the profile folder from another installation of TB into the profile folder at /root/.thunderbird, or...
in /root/.thunderbird symlink to the profile folder on another partition/OS. In that case you need to change profile.ini to adress the correct name of the symlinked file.
