Re: [tlug] [OT] email client tips?

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the mutt suggestions!  While my biggest Thunderbird pain points
have been ameliorated, I still plan on trying out mutt when I get a chance.

CalDAV (iCalendar on WebDAV) seems to be supported by many clients and
servers [1].  I wonder if there is a market for a calendar web application
that is not tightly coupled with other "enterprise software" or "groupware?"

I do the same thing for appointments that do not need to be shared (work
details that my wife has no interest in), but I am still using the GMail
calendar for appointments that I have to share with my wife.

Thanks for the tip; I have added it to my list!
