Installing Emailchemy on Linux
Emailchemy for Linux requires Oracle Java (OpenJDK) 1.8 or higher. It will not run correctly with Gnu Java (GCJ).
Emailchemy for Linux is distributed as a tarred gzip (.tgz). Unzip it with the command
tar -xzvf Emailchemy-UNIX.tgz
(Historical note: “UNIX” is in the name instead of “Linux” because Emailchemy dates back to 1999, when there were arguably more UNIX-based systems in business than Linux-based systems. We just haven’t changed the name to avoid breaking download links.)
Then run the Emailchemy-UNIX-installer.sh script and accept the defaults when asked where to install the software.
Emailchemy is tested to run on Ubuntu-based distributions, but it should work on many other Linux distros too.
