Well, a draft, at least. It took way longer than it should have to scrape up the information.
and also add little notes & ideas about them.
The whole article is in sections; you're supposed to hop around to whatever you're into.
It'll probably take another week before it's good enough to be considered "done", but I'm proud enough that I wanted to push it out a bit early.
@hs0ucy Yeah! Rmail can deal with IMAP, but only if you have Mailutils installed.
Unfortunately, no matter if you use POP or IMAP, rmail will still delete mail from the server
And with 'rmail-preserve-inbox', your mail will always be duplicated, so for some workflows it's a bit awkward.
1) Oh nuts, thanks! I'll specify the font colour.
2) I'm trying to keep it complete, but for now that mostly means "writing down whatever's on my mind". I'll probably refine it more in the future. Thanks.
@MutoShack Why does your article focus so much on mbox? I do think (1) that maildir is far superior and (2) users rarely do care at all about mail storage formats.
I spent an obscene amount of time setting up mu4e, then enjoyed it for all of 5 minutes before my office's o365/exchange implementation broke IMAP 😠
@unl0ckd That's a good idea. It seems like something most people are interested in, so I'll think about it.
Although, I don't do much gmai/o365, so I don't know how much info I'll be able to write around it, but I'll keep it in mind!
That's one thing I can't stand about Gmail: it takes /extra/ work for 3rd party mail clients to talk to it, and it's frustrating, haha!
