“The #fediverse is like #email.”


Now read this and understand it:

“I have been self-hosting my email since I got my first broadband connection at home in 1999 … But my emails are just not delivered anymore. I might as well not have an email server.

Email is now an oligopoly, a service gatekept by a few big companies which does not follow the principles of net neutrality … I lost. We lost. One cannot reliably deploy independent email servers.“

🆕 blog! “The IAB loves tracking users. But it hates users tracking them.”

The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) is a standards development group for the advertising industry. Their members love tracking users. They want to know where you are, who you're with, what you're buying, and what you think. All so they can convince you to spend sligh…

That banks, lawyers etc. feel there is zero risk in sending any critical information in an unencrypted email is so worrying… loan applications, and loan documents, sure; bank statements, no problem; invoice scams from intercepted unencrypted pdfs, etc. catch so many, and have done for years…
Then the banks tell you off for falling for scams, without any understanding of their own abysmal behaviour 🤯😩🤦‍♀️

I sometimes get bug reports, comments and feature requests by #email from accounts at .

When I reply, I never get answers.

Since I run an own mail server with my own domain(s), I am pretty sure my mails never get delivered to the inboxes at G***le, but to some deeply hidden spam folder, if not even totally rejected without notice.

Sorry folks, stopped replying to gmail addresses. Seems it is a waste of my time.

Please find & use a serious mail provider.

A few seconds of time here and there can really add up! When you need to send an email NOW, you don't want to backtrack through menus...

So we've added a floating Compose button to K-9 Mail version 6.500 -- available now to test in Beta, on both F-Droid and Google Play.

Can anyone recommend an #iOS #Email client that is able to sort messages by size? Apple mail on the mac can, but not iOS. Of course it has to be #accessible with #Voiceover. ,

Floating compose button in K-9 Mail beta. Behavior is the best of any of these floating buttons that I've seen (I like that we have an extra line when you get to the bottom so it doesn't cover any content).

How to be more private online in 2023:

Step 1: Register a Tutanota email account. 💪

That’s it. Welcome to the encrypted side. 🔒

And Happy New Year! 🥳

#email #privacy #security

2023 is going to be an exciting year for @Tutanota! They will be bringing subfolders and conversation view to the encrypted email service and client. Both these features are at the top of my wish list!

I wrote "Building an #Asynchronous, Internet-Optional Instant Messaging System" today. It suggests using #DeltaChat (@delta) across an #email system that can run on non-IP networks to achieve #IM coverage without having to have an Internet backbone, using things like #NNCP, #Syncthing, #Filespooler, and such. I love the ways we can combine interesting tools like this!

I’m looking into #Autocrypt and what seems to be its flagship app, #DeltaChat. Unfortunately neither work with my secure #email provider #ProtonMail. The latter have publicly expressed #security concerns but did not state details because they don’t want to discourage the project.

I think one issue is the unauthenticated #OpenPGP public key exchange. It feels like it’s achingly close, if only Autocrypt would support #WKD. Are there any other issues?

Thunderbird for Android releases next year, and development is moving forward at a promising pace.

Here's an early (but not final) preview of what the Message View will look like:

#K9Mail #OpenSource #Email #Thunderbird #Android

An actual email we just sent to a couple colleagues:

"Let's figure out the best time to knock out a monthly ThunderCast recording. We'll need 90 minutes, a few notes beforehand, and lots of energy!

My availability looks like this:
Anytime between 10 am and 3 pm Eastern Time, on the following days: December 7th, 8th, 11th, 12th, 15th, or 16th.

NOTE: Any similarities between my schedule and World Cup rest days are completely coincidental..."

TIL: less than 1% of Thunderbird users donate to support the @thunderbird project.


I've just changed this 1% a wee bit 😉, by donating a bit of money. Thunderbird is an indispensable tool for me so donating is a no-brainer.

If you are able to donate, please support them. We need to invest in opensource civic software now & for the future!

The path to bringing you a great email experience on Android devices begins with K-9 Mail, which joined the Thunderbird family earlier this summer.

As we work towards a modern redesign of desktop Thunderbird, we’re also working to improve K-9 Mail as it begins its transition to Thunderbird mobile in Summer 2023.

Read more about today's new release of K-9 Mail on the Thunderbird blog:

#Android #Thunderbird #K9Mail #Email #FOSS #OpenSource

ATTENTION EVERYONE WRINGING THEIR HANDS OVER “#MASTODON ADMINS CAN READ MY DIRECT MESSAGES”: #SysAdmins have *always* been able to read your #email and DMs unless encrypted, including at the big #SocialNetworks and Internet providers. We used to have t-shirts that said, “I READ YOUR EMAIL.”

It’s just hitting now because you got used to places where the admins were kept away in their cubicles and data centers instead of greeting you at the front door.

I guess moving to a new instance means it's time for an #introduction.

Hello, I’m cketti, an open source developer living in Berlin, Germany.

For the past 8 years I've been the maintainer of K-9 Mail, an open source email client for Android. In June of this year I joined the Thunderbird project to turn K-9 Mail into Thunderbird on Android. Follow @thunderbird to see how that is coming along.

I don't post a lot. When I do, it's most likely about #OpenSource, #AndroidDev, or #Email.

Here's a screenshot of #K9Mail's current message view. And two more showing what the NEW message design will look like! 👀

We've added some comments in the margins explaining some of the new features and UI elements.

Thunderbird for Android is taking shape, and it should be here before Thunderbird Supernova releases next summer!

(Note: This is by no means final, still a lot of polish and work to do)

Since 2003, part of our mission has been respecting your #privacy and putting YOU in control – not a corporation.

We never show advertisements. We never sell your data.

That’s because #Thunderbird is completely funded by donations from generous people just like you.

YOU keep this great software free. YOU help us develop great new features. YOU keep us thriving!

Please consider giving a gift to help Thunderbird be the best it's ever been in 2023.

Does anyone know a debian-based repro that has updated Thunderbird. MX Linux still uses v78. I'd rather just 'apt update/upgrade', rather than reinstall each and every time.

perfect. I have been using #Thunderbird for 10 year and still love it.

#email #sendmoremail

I can't wait to see my K-9 #email #app transform to @thunderbird app!

Already it is pretty awesome #ubuntu app.

We never did a proper #introduction, did we? 😲
