Windows Live Fail

I have twenty-one years’ worth of email in the archives here. And you would not believe what I had to go through to keep access to it.

    Well, I’ve used Pegasus Mail since 1995.

    Desktop email client applications have been redheaded stepchildren since… oh, about the time Gmail emerged.

    I have used Thunderbird when I had multiple active email accounts, or when I wanted to move my IMAP messages from one account to another*. But it’s been all but neglected since… oh, about the time Gmail emerged, so it’s just never going to be my interface of choice..

    By and large I’m a webmail guy now, using FastMail because and the rest are too Lowest Common Denominator for how I want to manage my email. And when I need to offload messages altogether, FastMail’s process is the easiest I’ve found for exporting those messages I deem worth saving.

    *I can’t do POP mail because I have multiple devices for accessing mail — it’s IMAP or webmail, or nothing.

    This is why I’m a technophobe.
