Install Claws Mail on Ubuntu

How to install Claws Mail, "the user-friendly, lightweight, and fast e-mail client" on Ubuntu:

JavaScript to open external sites (not on domain or subdomain) in new target

Overriding a string the second-simplest way in Drupal 7

Here's the situation: You don't need administrator-customizable strings like the String Overrides modules provide, but you'd like the changes in a more share-able (or consistently version controlled) place than settings.php, which details an easy $conf way of doing string overrides.

The trick is to BCC everything to a local user, and discard without error any other sending.
