The pleasure of using Mozilla Thunderbird again


Hi guys,

I am in the process to move everything from my old gmeil account to my brand new mailbox.org account.

Mailbox has a very nice webui however it lacks of some features respect gmeil and it is not fast as the gugl service. It doesn't mean that is not good, but it can't still compete with gmeil at the same level. Thus while with gmeil I stopped to use any desktop client as I used to do, because mostly useless, with Mailbox I started to use Mozilla Thunderbird again.

I have completely forgot about the pleasure of use an email client, In first place it has been very useful to move all the emails I needed from gmeil to mailbox seamlessly, pretty cool indeed; but then I started to use all the cool features that Thunderbird has.

For example Mailbox still not support labels while Thunderbird can use tags, so I was able to organize all my emails very quickly in I way I like. Another aspect is checking the email with Thunderbird is faster than with the Mailbox webmail, and now at home I am using just Thunderbird, while at work, since the moment I don't need... show more

I'm doing all my mail from one PC, so I don't have this problem. Perhaps that the TBsync or Thundersync add-on can make life easier for you.

Let me check thouse out! Thanks for the insight!



 

It's not often that I recommend a fellow Diasporian but @Jack is doing some very creative work in #OpenSCAD that he publishes here. Even better he also publishes the code with his work so it can be easily reproduced and modified. Take a look at his channel or search for the hashtag OpenSCAD and enjoy.

Alternative available for Cryptkeeper


Hi guys,

since the moment that Cryptkeeper is not available on Debian anymore, do you know any alternative to manage encrypted files and folders through a GUI?

Thanks in advance 🍺

De-guglification a personal step forward


Well guys,

eventually I decided to use Mailbox.org as my personal email and moving far away from gmail as soon as possible.

I used as reference this guide: https://www.fsf.org/resources/webmail-systems
and I almost checked out all of those but not the one with weird names, I would like to use my new email also for work and then I needed something that is easy to pronounce in English, Spanish and Italian.

At the very beginning I started with Posteo.org, very cute but the old UI/UX drove me crazy, I also tried it for a while with Thunderbird but the lacking of a modern desktop client (bugs-free) eventually made change my mind (and my money).

Probably ProtonMail is the best one, but even if you can have a free account when you start to want more space the price gets high very quickly while Mailbox has a good balance between features, price and UI/UX. I am pretty satisfied indeed.

I have just started, probably I will need a bit of adaptation but I am pretty confident I will be quickly productive and my old gmail account will be converted in my garbage email, cool!

Why is Friendica bloated by tons of trackers?


I noticed that Friendica has a tons of trackers, mine are disabled by my browser extensions, however Diaspora has 0 trackers.

It is something related with my Friendica server or it something that belongs to Friendica itself?

I am pretty confused... 🤔

@daniel01 That's odd I don't see that. But why don't you ask the admin Adam Clark (kinetix@social.isurf.ca). I believe he's a good guy.

I guess that mostly depends by how many youtube videos are showed in your stream as well as many twitters links are active... 🤔
