Probably, most people consider me a Pine power user. I do think that I'd fail miserably to handle all mail with a mouse and a graphical mail client. Though, 2000 lines of procmailrc play another essential role.
I try to avoid IMAP (because of its overhead), but as a sysadmin I am glad to read your valuable advices.
So, here, I am mostly looking for information on Pine, Procmail and IMAP. I am getting updates through RSS (which I use to have an eye on lots of sites).
And, yes, I am blog positive ;-) since I started my own.
Deflexion.com is much appreciated. Thanks for keeping it up.
I'm on the faculty at UW-Madison and have begun thinking abou the role of the internet and new tools (like blogs) for informal education networks. I've found some your comments and ideas thoughtprovoking.
Nancy you basically converted me to IMAP several years ago. Having been using IMAP and travelling around the world both professionally and personally and IMAP really, really suits me. Have stuck with this sight every since. Just wish I had more time to visit and wander around. I love IMAP but I am sorely disappointed that Mulberry/Cyrusoft has gone to the wall. I still remember that Saturday morning when I read the message - felt like my right arm had been cut off.
I found Infinite Ink, looked at the LuxSci site, and a whole new world is opening up ....
I'm now stuck here because... After years of using VM under Emacs for mail I decided to go cold-turkey to a modern GUI email system and switched to Opera's mail client. I like it, mostly, but I'm realizing that I don't process nearly as much mail as I used to, and as cool as some of the features have been, I'm ready to switch to something faster.
So I've been edging towards something using Fetchmail to deliver to Procmail and giving the mail to my email client via Dovecot, and it sounds like you've already done much of that.
I've tried to contact you directly via your e-mail address. Alas, it looks like my message didn't make it through your spam filters.
I wondered whether you knew an IMSP server service provider that you'd be able to recommend? I've been looking for a service for awhile.
Just wanted to drop you note thanking you for keeping this up all this time!
Every time there is a seachange in email I find myself coming back to Infinite Ink. From unix mail shell clients to pop to imap to secure pop/imap and procmail to converting from Unix mailboxes to MBX mailboxes and now to MIX (MIX is looking EXTREMELY worthwhile by the way. Order of magnitude level speedups and surprisingly easy to convert to), the site has been a great place to look for answers and (even more importantly) questions I didn't know to ask yet.
I should mention: imap.org is today (1/12/2010) a parked domain so those links went away. I think due to some nasty budget cuts and painful decisions at University of Washington.
Anyway, thanks again.
