After being pissed off one last time by thunderbird I switched to gmail. Importing mail was not as easy as it could have been, but once it’s all set up it’s not bad. Plus no more having to set up thunderbird everywhere (especially sending mail was always problematic). It almost feels like gmail UI is more responsive, plus it has vi like keys for moving around so I feel like almost back home in mutt. The only trouble is the overzeleaous spam filtering. But for the account where that matters (uiuc) there is already good spam filtering done.
I guess that’s one more thing I do to get on RMSes bad side.
