email in 2013 part 2

Here's another nerdy blog about email, with video.

Got an indirect request to do a video explaining this blog, so here it is.

I, like many others, don't trust the cloud. And this is especially true when it comes to email. However there is something to be said about having copies of your email both in the cloud and locally to your computer, and that's where the method shown in the video above comes into play.

Pseudo-synchronizing via POP3 isn't as convenient as IMAP4, no question, but it's far more reliable. And it also works much better on a smartphone. Smartphone mail apps just plain suck, and if you use a client on the phone, IMAP4 breaks all the time. But with POP3, email works wonderfully. Mail server connections are minimal and the power of your desktop, laptop and/or smartphone takes care of the rest.

And of course the best part is that you can "sync" up mail using something as ancient as an old clunker 486 PC from 1993 with Windows 95 all the way up to modern desktops, laptops and smartphones running modern OSes.

POP3 is just that damned good. Because it's just a mail protocol, all you need is the appropriate program with the appropriate features to use it like I show above. And that software happens to be Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5.0.14. Works like a charm, and your messages are synchronized - even if you have a PC that's 20 years old!

Pretty cool, eh? 🙂
