Managing email via IMAP with Geary

Pretty Post


Managing email on an IMAP server is part of everyday business. The slim client Geary makes it as simple on the desktop as it is on many mobile devices – despite a few remaining shortcomings.

Increasingly, voices herald the death of traditional email. In its place will be social networks and other services; however, thanks to smartphones, sending email has never been so easy.

The old rituals of opening the provider’s website and going through a complicated login or starting Thunderbird and calling up email have been changed by the use of mobile technology: Many processes have gotten simpler because the clear-cut interfaces of the mobile mail clients make it easier to concentrate on what is essential.
