Thanks. I realize that I could've done that, but a major reason I'm on
this list is to understand the hows and whys behind the technology. And
despite perusing the tor project website and its various links, I had
missed that particular page on Tails, so I'm thankful that I was shown
the pros and cons to Claws being included on Tails. I had also given up
subscribing to Tails discussion list because the page I had found for it
(Getting Started) didn't link to the archives, but I was prompted into
looking again and found the page (Contribute). I like to read archives
before subscribing so I know what to expect.
That and I much prefer to trust an encrypted disk with my email than a
server owned by people I 'trust' comparatively more than other entities.
Looking into Claws more, I've even begun to start experimenting with it.
Still like Thunderbird + enigmail + TorBirdy (when it works) for the
easy set-up amongst other reasons, but sometimes convenience isn't the
best security. And yet security must be conveniently-accessible if more
people are going to use it. I know I've enjoyed sharing Thunderbird +
Enigmail with people who thought encryption was too hard; I can't wait
to do the same with TorBirdy when its a bit more stable. So thank you to
all the developers, testers, researchers etc. I only hope my few
questions can be of value. :)
And thank you Katya for sharing Tbird's nature as a portable app.
Perhaps there is someone lurking on the list who was unaware and who
would be helped by this discussion.
