Discuss email on Linux

>Email client
Geary looks nice, but has no calendar or MS exchange support, Evolution looks like utter shit, Thunderbird might be ok

>Email provider
Is proton mail a good alternative to Gmail? My Gmail is pretty much junk at this point and I don't want to use my school email for anything but school/work at this point
>>
>>52252703
Protonmail is a good alternative. You should know that they use an israeli proxy to tunnel their traffic and prevent DDoS attacks though.
Tutanota is another contender. Same concept but no third party tunneling their traffic.

I wonder how much E-Mail Geary can actually handle before shitting the bed. I remember Evolution capping out at 1GB mailboxes back in 2004 or something.

my problem with protonmail/tutanota is the lack of email client support. as such, i personally use the hippie dippie, German cuckold posteo email service, but i also don't have steep needs for privacy.

whats good about it

>voluntarily using a service that is currently being investigated by german feds

>>52252899
True. Tutanota has an outlook plugin, but no option for alternative mail clients. It is open source, however. So I guess it's only a matter of time before we see someone develop plugins for other browsers as well.

Remind has a turing complete scripting language and the data is stored in an ascii txt file so you can put it under version control/syncing with git. Radical has a program that will parse your remind file and serve it to your mobile devices as caldav sync.

I'm not on Linux right now because Linux WiFi doesn't work on my lenovo laptop, but I do have some recommendations for email. For clients, don't do it. They are insecure shit, and no matter how good it is malware could hijack it and send spam. Plus they disable a bunch of thing enabled by default on many web interfaces, like images and nice fonts. As for email, I use scryptmail and it's pretty good. No restrictions or inactivity deletions, completely free and secure.
>>
>>52252820
yorba applications are shit

Geary is so shit it doesn't even support a basic option like custom IMAP folder names (Sent Items won't work, it must be Sent)
>>
>>52253800
oh and Evolution is also shit, it's hard coded to wrap text at 73 characters. Instead of fixing that, they just state it in their FAQ.

mutt and Thunderbird are masterrace

mutt supports MIME, and MH?

MH is more than a mailbox format. Thanks for proving my point.

Fuck off

>>52256535
I will lay off if the MUA supports PGP/MIME by calling gpg2 on the system

I'm just memeing

>>52256632
What are you saying. Have you used MH? You can sign and encrypt from the what now prompt.
>>
>>52256955
What do you mean the 'what now prompt'? I've haven't used MH for signing and encrypting, just mutt, which I use daily.

Ahh i guess youve never used MH. Mh is like mutt but with UNIX design philosophy. You can install it with gnu mailutils or you can get the nmh package that is more up to date. There is also a free oreilly book on sourceforge. Pic related

>>52257646
I have to say it sounds interesting. Thanks, anon. But does it support PGP/MIME? That's a deal breaker for me.

>>
>>52252810
and like geary it is now discontinued.
see, the cucks at yorba tried a fundraiser and nobody wanted to pay for a buggy, underpowered, client that bombs all the time, uses shit-load of memory and cant even remember the last window size or if you want it to be maximized.

though i think the new gnome calendar is pretty close to california.
>>
>>52257739
>shit. abosolute shit.

Thanks for that great review, surely I'm going to be listening to you.
>>
>>52257796
Will Geary still be developed by, say, GNOME, or other parties?
>>
>>52252703
>>Email client
Evolution (recommended if you have anything to do with ms exchange)
Seamonkey Mail (great client similar to the good old MS outlook)

Thunderbird is dogshit slow, and loading large emails (that contain a lot of pictures because the sender was too fucking dumb to compress them) takes ages.

I've never used geary, so I might give it a try.
Does it require setting everything up, or rather detects default settings for popular providers (like thunderbird/evolution)?
>>
I use Gmail on my browser

i have a phobia on email clients
>>
I've been using Geary for some time now because it's the only client that has a background service so you don't need to keep the window open at all times, but because it is not getting anymore updates and is pretty buggy in general I'm looking for something else, but I feel like Geary is the only client which was meant to actually be easy to use with only basic functionality. So far I haven't found anything that
- runs in the background
- doesn't look like it's from 1999
- works
- doesn't depend on any KDE stuff (I don't want to pull in a million dependencies just for an email client)
at the same time.

>tfw trying to set up sendmail/postfix on my servers so I can send an email to myself when a job is done

Am I just retarded or is it really this difficult?
>>
Just set up your own domain and run your own server. Once all your mail is in maildir format or whatever locally you can just browse it with MUTT or PINE.
>>
>>52252703

I'm using evolution for its ews support, haven't had any problems with it so far.
