PostPosted: Tue 22 Feb 2011, 21:33    Post subject:  Looking for Email Client  

I was looking for an email client that is a little more private than I've been able to find. I need a client that when I open it, it doesn't show all my emails. I've tried Slypheed and I can't find any settings that would relate to my issue. When I open the program, my emails are just sitting right there.

I tried Thunderbird and it has the option to "expunge" my inbox, so I tried it. When I quit and then opened it back up my emails were there. Also, if i just click cancel at the password prompt, I can browse and open all the emails in the inbox.

I don't want someone to be able to open the email client and see ANY of my emails. Can someone help me?

Thank you.

Encryption of pupsave means only you will be able to use that pupsave.

I appreciate the responses. I should have clarified that I don't want people that use the computer to be able to just click the email icon and be able to read the emails in there.

Can I encrypt a folder that the email client resides in? Can I encrypt the shortcut on the desktop or programs list?

I would like to not have to use the web to check email if possible.

You can easily set a 'Master Password' on Thunderbird and/or SeaMonkey mail. So, if anybody click on the 'E-mail' icon will be prompted to enter the master password. If press 'Cancel' no account will be lauched.
You could also set-up your email client to show you only your newer mails, but i'm not sure if Slypheed could do that...

If this is a security issue, try to use a HARD master password to see if its good enought to your needs.

Hope it helps.

Yes, GustavoYz! That would be perfect!

Can you tell me how to do that? Also, can you apply that to any program?

Thank you!

On SeaMonkey:

>Go to Edit >> Preferences
>>Click on the tiny triangle at the left or double click on the tag that says 'Privacy & Security' (open the options under it)
>>> Click on 'Master Passwords' (under the 'Privacy & security' part)
>>>> Click on the button at the right :: 'change password'. Now just choose a good password, re-entry how many times it asks and re-start SeaMonkey to try it.

One thing, the password works on all the SeaMonkey suite, which include mail and browser too.

Long time without use Firefox, but should be something really close to those steps (search for a 'preferences' option). Right?

Hope it works.

That worked perfectly. I just can't get Seamonkey to connect with gmail now. I didn't realize you have to pay to get yahoo to forward it's pop/imap info either.

I'll continue to tweak with it and I really appreciate the help Laughing

Check this guide:

http://www.crulp.org/research/PAN/Pakistan/localization/seamonkey/SeaMonkey%20(en-US)%20Quick%20Start%20Guide%20(English).pdf

Its for Win*** but ports numbers and the app configurations are the same.
Regards.

Gmail allows POP3/IMAP access for free. Of course the hassle of changing your email address etc. Plus you have to trust google
