Suggestion: Make Geary default email client

Post by johnywhy » Mon Jul 30, 2018 8:24 am

Geary just happens to be the most modern linux email client. It's very slick and quick, rich features, minimalist interface, rich-text emails, great stuff.

On my Mint 19 xfce, works nearly perfectly, except a minor issue

It's user-friendly shiny like Mint is user-friendly shiny :)

No calendar otherwise I'd be interested. Currently use evolution, prior to that a thunderbird user for years.

And if you want to push geary, I was very impressed with mailspring (again no calendar) :)

And it also has no kitchen sink.

There's a LOT to be said for doing one thing well.

Geary is totally different concept to Thunderbird, which is bloated, old-school, terrifyingly complex, and looks like AOL 1995.
