You should be able to use YaST to install it. I would fire up YaST and go to the software install portion and find Thunderbird - I'm sure it's there. You can do it the way you described, but then Suse can't keep track of what it has installed.

I'm afraid Thunderbird is not to be found via Yast > Software management, at least here it isn't. The command you have issued should work, as user too: again, here it works.

It would seem that this link is still indispensible!

You can also download the RPM from here:

Just browse to it (like in the Konqueror file manager), right click on it, select ACTIONS, and then INSTALL WITH YAST. Enter your root password, and it should install very painlessly.
