last i knw enigmail still wasn't working with T-Bird: communication error w/ Gnu-PG client

if they used GPGME instead of OpenPG they'd probably do better.

I've been playing with alternatives; Evolution seems good although I think I actually prefer the CLAWS approach

I think CLAWS is, simply put: better software.

I had to change 1 line in the .gnupg/gpg-agent.conf to

Code: Select all

pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-gnome3

It was pinentry-gtk3
Now it works as it used to do
Btw, my system is Linux Mint MATE 18.2 x64

thanks

i used to follow the enigmail newsletter; they fussed a lot with this pinentry program.

i'm not convinced that writing in pseudo code and trying to get a program to run cross platform is really the best idea. the new F-Fox seems to run good though :)

A combo of thunderbird and web mail for me.

Some days though I have nostalgia for some of the long gone e-mail clients I used to use like Eudora and Pegasus mail.

I have been using Evolution for a couple years now. I just liked it better than Thunderbird. Probably because of Evolution's similarity to Office Mail.

Protonmail; it was great to not feel Gmail breathing down my neck anymore. Private, simple to use, and am very happy with it. :)

For the past four years, I am using Thunderbird. It's very easy and convenient for me.

I use Thunderbird on Linux
K-9 on Android

I am surprised that nobody mentioned Evolution e-mail client.

Last I saw was Evolution only had a mailing list. No forum. To me thats a turn off.

I especially like Yandex, since I found out that Google considers forwarding my Gmail to Yandex is a "Security Risk" and won't allow it.
I tend to use a Gmail (that I got years ago before I knew better) for anything that might be official, or ever involve lawyers...you know what I mean.
I'm using Gmail here, actually - not sure why - I probably was on auto-pilot.
I have a couple of other accounts that have their own set of purposes, but I use Vladimir whenever possible.

Otherwise. I collect everything up with Thunderbird, which does have faults.
But it's truly the best. Right now anyway.

I've been running Thunderbird for so long, I forget there is anything else.

I found this email company, mail.com that lets me choose a suffix from a large list, like XXX@bikerider.com, or other choices, it is also very secure. I use the free version.

No, we don't. Naturally, I don't use it.
