Review: Mailstrom puts you in control of your email | PCWorld
“That's why I like Mailstrom so much: It leaves you in control. It shows you the problems with your inbox, and lets you solve them yourself. For example, when I realized that I was storing more than 1,000 messages from the very editor who assigned me this review, I realized I need to create a folder just for her—a task I was able to easily accomplish from within Mailstrom. When I saw that I had hundreds of messages from a bookstore that's no longer in business, I was able to delete them all in one fell swoop.”

Crap apps and female email | language: a feminist guide
“When I’ve written about this subject before, my message has been addressed to the producers of bullshit: stop policing women’s language. But this time I’m going to focus on the consumers. Women, please understand: it’s not you that’s undermining yourself by using powerless language; it’s the bullshitters who are undermining you with their constant incitement to anxiety, insecurity and self-censorship. And you don’t have to let them get away with that; all you have to do is ignore them. Don’t buy their books. Don’t sign up for a training course. Don’t laugh at jokes about women saying sorry all the time. And don’t download the Just Not Sorry app. Because the suggestion that removing ‘just’ from your emails will significantly advance your career is an insult to your intelligence. And that really does demean you.”

Thunderbird: From mbox to maildir | Wilders Security Forums
“The advantages/disadvantages of both formats are discussed here http://www.linuxmail.info/mbox-maildir-mail-storage-formats/ and in this thread https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r30730482-Thunderbird-TB-mbox-files-per-folders-vs-maildir-files-per-message (obviously started by Wilders member @WildByDesign ). In my opinion, the most important advantages of maildir over mbox are the following:

“1. The maildir format is much more robust. The risk of losing data is much smaller if Thunderbird or your computer crashes.
“2. Incremental backups are much faster as only the new and modified files have to be backupped.
“3. Scanning your mails with an AV scanner is easier, and infected mails can be removed without the risk of data loss.”

“Inputs in OSX use some emacs shortcuts by default:

“ctrl+f and ctrl+b go back and forward one character
“ctrl+n and ctrl+p go to the next and previous line/entry

“Unfortunately there are some emacs shortcuts missing from this list. However, OSX users are able to define keybinding shortcuts in ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict, and these shortcuts are available in all OSX inputs. However Airmail does not seem to support these shortcuts when composing a message. Is there any way to make airmail’s compose message act like every other input in OSX?”

Just as jQuery normalizes the DOM and abstracts low-level interactions and animations, MJML abstracts the low-level hacks for responsive emails with an easy syntax. MJML is responsive by design. This means you can forget about nested tables and conditional comments and, more generally, about making your email responsive. MJML does it for you."

Combined with media queries, this is significant step forward in the battle to conquer responsiveness across all devices."

1364158 - When downloading multiple messages (headers or full messages), Thunderbird should do batch IMAP requests
"Right now, whenever Thunderbird needs to download multiple messages or message headers, it uses individual IMAP commands to fetch each message's data separately.

"This isn't a big deal when only a small number of messages are being fetched, but it's much slower than it needs to be when many messages are being fetched, for example, when a folder with a lot of messages in it is opened for the first time, or when a folder is repaired.

"For example, in one test I ran, downloading all the message headers in a folder containing 1,000 messages takes on average 9.1s when separate requests are executed for each message, or 0.2s when they're all batched together, a speed improvement of 98%. I've attached the script I used to perform this test."

This can make a huge difference when a lot of messages are being downloaded.

freeze - Why would Thunderbird regularly hang for 10 seconds - Super User
Some ideas on unfucking Thunderbird:
"In some cases, the problem can be caused by a mail summary file (*.msf) file being corrupted. This can occur when your folder is mildly corrupted due to not compacting it regularly. A quick and dirty fix is to:

"1. Exit Thunderbird.
2. Find your profile folder.
3. Open the folder containing your stored messages. For example, if you are using the Global Inbox, this would be the "Local Folders" folder inside the "Mail" folder. Otherwise, it's a folder named after the mail server, inside the "Mail" folder. For example, "pop.gmail.com" if you're using gmail.
4. Select the *.msf files and delete them.
5. Restart Thunderbird.
6. Wait for Thunderbird to recreate the mail summary file(s)."

[…]
"In some cases, the problem is caused when Thunderbird has trouble detecting and filtering junk (spam). This may be caused by a corrupted training.dat file. It may be necessary to delete this (Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Junk -> Reset Training Data -> OK) and retrain the [Mail Controls]."

10 basic iOS tricks every iPhone owner should know | Macworld
"Whenever you duck an incoming call by tapping the Decline button or double-clicking the Sleep/Wake button, you send the caller straight to voicemail. That might be fine if you’re declining an unknown or spam caller, but you might want to think twice before sending your touchy boss directly to voicemail purgatory.

"Instead of tapping the “Decline” button, you can single-press the Sleep/Wake button to silence the ringer without sending your caller immediately to voicemail.

"Instead, try clicking the Sleep/Wake button once instead of twice. Doing so will silence the ringer without sending the caller straight to voicemail. After a few rings, they’ll roll naturally to voicemail, just as if you were simply unavailable to take the call rather than declining the call outright."

Limits - Thunderbird - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
"Maildir stores each message as an individual files, i.e. does not combine messages into a single file, and thus bypasses the 4GB folder size as well as eliminates any need to compact a folder. The maildir support, also called maildir-lite in Thunderbird, is very similar to, but not meant to be 100% compatible with, the maildir spec. It was hoped that maildir would be enabled by default in Thunderbird 24.0 (Fall 2013) but it is still too buggy for normal use. [11] [12]. Maildir also needs a rebuild index mechanism since power uses may fiddle with the contents of the maildir folder from the command line or a file manager. But the maildir support is improving. With Thunderbird 52 it is now possible to choose using maildir via the account manager UI when creating a new account."

"'No is a very hard little word. I have such a difficult time saying it that in some cases, I have to roleplay this with my friends (or therapist). It can be helpful to have a go-to line. If I freestyle at this, I cave almost immediately. Here are some lines you can borrow that have worked for me:

“"'I would love to do this! Unfortunately, I can’t possibly add another thing to my plate right now.'

"'I’m so flattered that you’d ask, but I’m much too busy critiquing the work of my students. I can recommend someone wonderful who charges a very reasonable consultation fee.'

"'I’m sorry, I cannot afford to take on any assignments that do not pay.'

"'Oh, thank you! I really wish that I wanted to do this!',

"7. Stop thinking of 'no' as 'no.'

"Get comfortable with no. This requires shifting your relationship to no. You are not saying no to an event where you might make an important connection, you are saying yes to your work. You are saying yes to the sleep you need to make good work. You are saying yes to the real relationships you already have and need to nourish and enjoy so that you can be strong enough to withstand the very hard parts of writing and living. You are not saying no to an opportunity; you are saying yes to the revolution. You are not saying no to that person who might be disappointed in you, you are saying yes to a life in which you are not in bondage to the fear of other people’s disappointment."

"Creating a workable To: filter may take a while. Until then you can use a temporary filter.

"1. Make a new Adddress Book, call it e.g. 'Only Me.'

"2. Make a filter
From . . . . is in my address book . . . . Only Me

"3. Now you control the filter by adding/removing addresses as needed.
Just keep only the addresses that send only me mail."

A look back at 2015: My Top iOS Apps - BrettTerpstra.com
"Flying Ruler
This thing is awesome. There have been ruler apps on the iPhone since the App Store began, but this one uses the clinometer and accelerometer to allow the user to simply hold the phone at a starting point, then move it to the ending point, for highly accurate distance and angle measurements."

"Sanebox
This is how I’ve been handling my email flow for a few years now. It works well with Spark’s features on my phone and MailMate’s features on my Mac, automatically determining whether something is worth being in my immediate Inbox or not. Additional features like email-forwarding to snooze or remind you that an email hasn’t been replied to are excellent."

Resize Photos from iPhone by Mailing Them to Yourself
"• Small is 320×240 – so small it’s basically useless, hard to imagine a scenario where this size would be appropriate
• Medium is 640×480 – probably what ‘small’ should be
• Large is 1632×1224 – exactly half of the full size image, the halving applies to all iOS devices for now
• Actual is 3264×2448 – the full size image taken from the iPhone camera, not resized or compressed"

Review: Kiwi - Gmail, Unleashed From the Browser | MacTrast
"Kiwi ($9.99 in the Mac App Store), originally on Kickstarter as Gmail for Mac, is a Mac application that offers the ease of use of the Gmail desktop web interface, as well as Gmail’s customizations, features, and settings, but in a native Mac application. This means you get the same Gmail you’ve used in Safari or Chrome, but with the added beauty of desktop notifications, easy account switching, gestures, and more."

MacOS Mail Anti Inline Plugin • Clive Galeni's Blog
"The plugin solves situations with awkwardly inlined images when sending images to anyone who is not using Mail App. If you want your images to appear as attachments to your recipients then this plugin is for you. It also prevents Mail auto-preview feature and display attachments as icons by default. It does something similar to what Attachment Tamer used to do."

Show dates and times in Mail's message list | Macworld
"One of those is that there’s less room to display information about each message in the message list. As a result, Mail shortens the date display dramatically compared to what you’d see in the “classic” Mail layout. Specifically, for messages received today, Lion Mail shows only the time received; for messages received yesterday, Mail displays just the word Yesterday; and for messages received prior to yesterday, Mail displays just the date."

Thunderbird 38.0.1 is a massive update for the email client - gHacks Tech News
"Development of the email client Thunderbird was more or less restricted to maintenance and security updates ever since Mozilla made the decision to use resources for other projects and move development into the hands of the community.

"That was back in 2012 and while that did not really affect existing users as Thunderbird is more or less complete when it comes to all things email, it must have reflected badly on the overall perception of the client.

"The release of Thunderbird 38.0.1 is the first massive update of the email client that introduces more than just bug fixes and security updates."
