    EMail client

    What email client is preferred? Trojia crashes all the time and evolution cannot connect to my server.

    (On my Windows 10 client Mail works fine.)

    I'll second the Thunderbird suggestion works fine for me.

    I use/used eM Client (native) on Windows 10 and now use eM Client under Wine on Fedora 29. Google special instructions to install .NET and WineTricks to have successful run and execution of eM client under Wine.

    I'll agree about Thunderbird. Somewhat bloated, IMHO, but works pretty well. If you don't need a GUI client, I recommend mutt, but most folks prefer a GUI.

    claws-mail is nice & light. Pretty full featured with one feature that "bugs" me: cannot display HTML-email. Prevents web-trackers, but sometimes a hurdle

    Re: EMail client

    I use Thunderbird as a work email client and receive thousands of emails per day using it, one recommendation I would make if you get a LOT of email is to change the "message store type" setting in "preferences -> advanced -> General" to "File per message (maildir)" rather than "File per folder (mbox)", I find that with mbox a 6GB mail file often gets corrupted somewhere and takes an age to rebuild. Unfortunately I believe you have to rebuild the account after changing the setting for it to take effect.

    I'd also recommend the "ThreadKey" add-on (adds U and T keyboard shortcuts for threaded/unthreaded" and if you interact with a lot of people using Outlook who use smileys then "Smiley Fixer" will clear up the "J"s that MS use for smileys.

    Re: EMail client

    Oh, interesting. I did post this before. Trojita still crashes when sorting emails and now it is 2019. Evolution still cannot connect to our company Exchange mail server.

    Can I use mutt to connect to an exchange mail server?

    This is for Ubuntu, but it seems possible. I haven't tested it myself.

    Unfortunately I believe you have to rebuild the account after changing the setting for it to take effect.
    What do you mean by rebuild the account, the control in thunderbird says "Message store type for new accounts" that implies to me that you can't do this to an existing pop3 account.
    But it would seem you could just create a new account set to use maildir storage, point it to the same pop server, then disable the old account and ease into the new account as new mails would go to the new account.
    But you'd then want to do an export from the old into the new.
    Is there a way to convert the old account to maildir that's easier than that?

    That's exactly what I meant, you can't convert old accounts between storage types. I have seen converters online but I don't know how reliable they are and, assuming your mail is still on the server, re-downloading them all is probably quicker than the conversion anyway. It's a PITA when you have 10GB worth of mail online though.

    That seems rather complicated! I use the davmail exchange gateway, basically you change one config file to point to your Exchange server via EWS, OWA or WebDav (I use EWS), add some ssl keys if you want your mail comms encrypted, choose some local ports for IMAP, ldap, smtp etc and then configure thunderbird/mutt etc to point at localhost. It's been very reliable for me.

    Re: EMail client

    guys please just post the name of the terminal based program without the ASCII pattern code boxes in future so they show up in the forum activity stream as actual posts instead of a line of hashes. also a reason why they are so fantastic would be good
