Email client

Postby jalisco » 2018-05-03 14:50

Hello,

I have been using Thunderbird for years, but slowly, I have come to learn that it is no longer being developed. In other words, little bugs are showing up here and there.

I had used it with the Enigmail addon, to fulfill my encryption needs.

Now that I am growing frustrated with Thunderbird, I was curious, is there an alternative free email client that support PGP??

I think Evolution does? I haven't tried, but perhaps.

Anything else?

Thanks.

I have used sylpheed, also for gpg crypted mailing. I supppose there are other mail clients that can do that, but I have no experience on others.

Evolution supports PGP and S/MIME.

Oh yeah, I remember Evolution does. My issue is that I used Mac, Windows and Linux throughout the household.

Predominantly, I use Linux, but my partner uses Mac. Worse case, I will use Windows, if I absolutely have to for some archaic application.

thanks, I will check out sylpheed, it seems to support the three OSes that I might use.

I have been using Thunderbird for years, but slowly, I have come to learn that it is no longer being developed.

According to the Thunderbird https://blog.mozilla.org/thunderbird/ Hiring more devs and a beta just been released.

Anyway Claws mail is my client. Basically a fork of Sylpheed with more features.

The last time I tried Claws it blocked every other action while fetching mail.
Has that been made multithreaded now?

Thanks for all the information.

After looking at the wiki infos, and recomendations, I will give Claws a try. Looks promising.
