Email Same Age as Me? Bloody Hell....

4 comments

This is really quite astonishing, Email apparently was first conceived of and tested in 1971 My preffered email client still looks like it's in 1971 but it's damn powerful, and i can connect to this machine from anywhere via SSH and access it, so im happy.

On a sidenote: People that reply to emails that are part of a group, like a cc'd email between collegues but use a client that does not thread properly should be shot.

Makes you feel old Nick...

Australia got its first public National email system in about 1985 or 1986... I was product manager.... reckon you feel old Nick

Before that - we had 'Minerva' - and emails sent within Australia had to first be routed outside of Australia...

mutt -- used to be my favourite as well, and still use occationally when I am stuck with only ssh. HTML has no problem either as I usually map text/html to w3m.

However, terminal sucks for international characters. I receive a lot of Chinese emails, and with mutt you just don't have the convenience to change encoding on the fly...

The new mutt-ng may have that scotty - it has a lot of improvements but i dont know for sure...
