Start using this module
A Puppet module for installing and configuring Mozilla Thunderbird. It makes heavy use of hash parameters to allow complex configurations on a per-user and per-email account basis. Typically all of the configuration should be placed high-up in the hierarchy, so that every user on every desktop/laptop gets the same Mozilla Thunderbird configuration. The default configuration can then be overridden on a node-by-node basis.
This module has been tested on Linux (Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 8-9) and Windows 7 64-bit. Other *NIX variants such as RedHat, Debian and FreeBSD as well as 32-bit Windows have not been tested, but should work out of the box or with minor modifications. Adding MacOS X support should be fairly straightforward.
Currently there are a few limitations:
- Only one identity per email account
- Only system-wide IMAP/POP/SMTP server configuration
- Only email account details are currently configured
- No way to reuse global IMAP/POP server info for several accounts of a same system user
- User's profiles.ini get's overwritten, so does not co-exist nicely with manually configured accounts. This might be considered a feature.
Example usage of the class in Hiera:
classes: - thunderbird # Globally defined IMAP/POP servers thunderbird::servers: gmail: host: 'imap.gmail.com' is_gmail: 'true' rackspace: host: 'secure.emailsrvr.com' # Globally defined SMTP servers thunderbird::smtpservers: gmail: host: 'smtp.gmail.com' port: 587 try_ssl: 2 auth_method: 3 description: 'Gmail SMTP server' rackspace: host: 'secure.emailsrvr.com' port: 465 try_ssl: 3 auth_method: 1 description: 'Rackspace SMTP server' # User profiles (one per system user) thunderbird::profiles: john: accounts: 'john_gmail,john_rackspace' defaultaccount: 'john_gmail' # Email account details. One or more per user. thunderbird::userconfigs: john_gmail: username: 'john' email: 'email@example.com' fullname: 'John Doe' organization: '' server: 'gmail' server_realusername: 'john.doe' smtpserver: 'gmail' john_rackspace: username: 'john' email: 'firstname.lastname@example.org' fullname: 'John Doe' organization: 'ACME Terraforming, Inc.' server: 'rackspace' smtpserver: 'rackspace'
