Here's how you change into a folder if the folder can also contain subfolders: press <space>.
You can change folders using the change-folder command, but you'll need to hit <space> to view the files instead of just changing folders.

A year on — our experience launching a paid, proprietary product on Linux. |
Unsurprisingly, security is a major concern for Linux users. Thankfully, we learned this lesson early after watching several of our competitors getting roasted online for laissez-faire data collection. In many ways, we are lucky that our product is secure by design (we don’t store or process data online — strictly between you and your mail server). None the less, we are very open with users regarding the data we collect, and users can turn off what little data collection we do. Of course, the boundaries are much clearer now thanks to GDPR. Startups are less likely to make privacy related blunders. But if you are creating a product, think twice about using 3rd party services.

The most surprising and delightful aspect of this journey has been the feedback from Linux users. To put it mildly, they care about software. Many of them are software developers themselves. We call it professional sympathy! Their generosity, quality insights and willingness to help us squash bugs have accelerated the pace of our development and learning dramatically. So much so, that if I ever end up building another product, I’ll be going Linux first.

email - Can you use Davmail to access Exchange archives? - Stack Overflow |

Best option (suggested here: is to set the "Public (shared)" path in the server advanced settings to "/archive".

I had to toy with this one a bit; it didn't seem to work on even the first or second try. Things that might have fixed it (?): unchecking "Allow server to override these settings," unchecking "Show only subscribed folder" in server settings, possibly adding a trailing slash at the end of '/archive/'?

IF you create a new account and set the IMAP root to /archive and it mostly works. This might require creating a second account in Thunderbird, and aliasing something like 'localhorst' to 'localhost' in /etc/hosts so that Thunderbird doesn't complain about there being duplicate incoming servers.

Also doesn't seem to work in the 5.3.x series, which doesn't appear to support URLs in the format '', just ''.

What's kind of bullshit is that all your mail credentials are now stored on a third-party server; another ToS and privacy policy and someone else's database to get hacked (unless they use client-side encryption).

PSTDisableGrow and the Enterprise Vault Outlook Addin 9.0.1 – Things I Learned Today
I’ve just finished working on an issue with the folks in Support, relating to PSTDisableGrow. A customer had the key set per :

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and then click the following registry subkey:HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Office \ 12.0 \ Outlook \ PST
On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
Type PstDisableGrow, and then press ENTER.
Right-click PstDisableGrow, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
Exit Registry Editor.

Via: (where, as usual, you have to wade through a few WTF/bullshit answers--"put your .PST file on read-only media and don't use duplicate filenames!"--to find the one person who knows what they're talking about; cf.

qmail - Wikipedia []
Wildcard mailboxes
qmail introduced the concept of user-controlled wildcards. Out of the box, mail addressed to "user-wildcard" on qmail hosts is delivered to separate mailboxes, allowing users to publish multiple mail addresses for mailing lists and spam management.

Sorry for the Delayed Response - The New Yorker
You e-mailed asking for my opinion, and I wanted to give a really thorough, well-thought-out, articulate response, so I starred your e-mail, and over time it became a mascot for my illogical but oppressive sense of dread in the face of slightly annoying tasks. That little yellow star became a shining testament to the burden of modernity! Every day, it dared me to write a response worthy of the time I’ve made you wait, and every day I thought, Ugh, no. But today! Today I will respond! Rejoice, my patient friend! (I’m actually really busy, though, so this is going to be a vague, half-assed response that I could have easily written in the minute after I first read your e-mail, five months ago.) Sorry!

Decoding UTF-8 charset in an .EML file []
I ran into this problem saving an email to the .eml format with Thunderbird. on the Mac is an okay viewer for this kind of file, but what I really wanted was the UTF-8 source text to paste into LibreOffice.

What communicating only in emoji taught me about language in the digital age — Quartz
“When people interact, 60-70% of meaning is derived from non-verbal cues—gestures and facial expressions,” said Vyvyan Evans, a professor of linguistics at Bangor University. (This is also why, by the way, that ending correspondence without a smiley can seem curt.)
