Gmail...


Lately I've just been using the Gmail web interface.

Other than that, Thunderbird works really well, has the features I need and none of the bloat that I don't.

Don't like the webmail (Gmail - Yahoo) since your PERSONAL content becomes THIERS AFTER 30 DAYS to publish, sell, use in advertising. If you read the small print in the TOS it's downright Chinese police state stuff (like Win10). I have TB set up to grab the mail off Yahoo - ATT shifted all its users to it on 2006-2007 and very sneakily moved their email addresses, contacts (that became their property) and all archived messages and message filters to the NetMail "option". Was not yet retired, and got a number of FRANTIC calls from attorneys, accountants, pharmacists, doctors, etc. who are required, by Law in my State, to "retain physical control of all personal and professional client communications and for an additional period of seven years thereafter." The second Gmail or Yahoo "agreements" allow them to appropriate this data these professionals are ripe for lawsuits. Thousands have been filed, and quietly settled, but being a licenced IT Pro, I can't give any gory details here - but there are plenty of them out there.

But Americans keep "whistling past the graveyard" saying the "well if you have nothing to hide mantra" - just jope you never get sued, in a divorce, in a misguided Govt investigation, have your identity information compromised, etc., etc. and you won't be "whistling a happy tune" any more.

If you are a "Professional", especially an IT Professional, you best inform your clients in writing and have them sign something; or the next big "leak" may be in your wallet!

+1 for Seamonkey. I've used Thunderbird, which is very similar, but prefer the way Seamonkey's mail client works. Mainly use it with Gmail imap.

If it wasn't for the amount of HTML mail I seem to get, I'd probably still be using Mutt...

Paul.
