I have been a faithful user of T-Bird for some time now (both Windows and Linux) and I have been thinking that maybe its time to look into a new client.
That being said, the question I have could be a 2 parter.
1a. What email client are you using.
1b. If you needed to go to Windows, does your current Linux mail client have a windows port.
While 1b is not entirely required (as I cant imagine the need to actually have a Windows system) I am really interested what folks are using and that might sway me to go with something new.
For years just Gmail on all devices.
I use Thunderbird with ProtonMail bridge under Linux. Nothing new for you, I guess, so I won’t go into details.
Quick, kill it with fire before it lays eggs!
I was with Protonmail but I moved to Fastmail. I don’t use a desktop client.
Well, at work I often need an email I received years ago, and I have almost all of them in Gmail since 2005. I change my desktop every 2-3 years and can’t imagine copying all that stuff from one machine to another. Also - I mentioned many times on this forum, that I’m not one of the “security conscious people”.
I use protonmail web client… I have used their bridge with Thunderbird, but really see no use for a desktop client.
Evolution works well for me. I have my wife’s and my email accounts on it and it does everything I want it to do, especially, cleaning my boxes a lot easier.
Just using Thunderbird all the time. It just works ™. Tried Kmail once one a very low end system, on that core two duo it was too heavy, but if your system is a bit better, which it probably is, it might be worth a try. Quick note: Kmail downloads all mails onto your computer. That might take some time. It looks like, there is no windoze support now anymore.
At last!! This looks like good news, given that Im a new protonmail fanboy!
I use Protonmail but I can’t be bothered with a email client for the desktop.
Yeah, I’m kind of with you but I had TB set up beautifully a few months back and I kind of miss it. In saying that, protonmail is working well for me.
It just got annoying and as I actually do absolutely fuck all that requires email on my home computer I don’t bother I just visit the individual sites.
mailspring is pretty good, available on all three platforms.
Also, the popular Bluemail is also available for Linux.
Same as Dobbie03 fastmail and have never used a client never will.
