  • HTML and Word in mutt

    I read my mail using mutt, and even though I was severely tempted by astroid, mutt just works too nicely for me to make moving away an attractive proposition. And it is a fine piece of software. If you're still stuck with Thunderbird (let alone some webmail interface in the …

  • Big Brother Award: Wieder nicht cleverreach

    Ich will nicht ganz verhehlen, dass mich die diesjährigen Big Brother Awards ein klein wenig enttäuscht haben. Gewiss waren das alles verdiente Empfänger, aber mein Favorit war wieder mal nicht dabei. Dabei gebe ich den Leuten vom FoeBuD (ich verweigere mich der Umbenennung in digitalcourage aus reiner Nostalgie), dass dessen …

  • A Feedback Form in Pelican

    I realise that the great days of discussions on blogs are over, as Sam Hartman blogged the other day – at least for now. Still, I'd like to make it somewhat more straightforward to send me feedback on the posts here than having to get the contact address and dropping me …

  • Mutt says: “error encrypting data: Unusable public key”

    Today, I replied to an encypted mail, and right after the last “yes, go ahead, send this stuff already”, my mail client mutt showed an error:

    error encrypting data: Unusable public key
    

    Hu? What would “unusable” mean here? The message when all PGP keys are expired looks quite a bit …

  • Long live PGP

    The other day I ran into two rants against PGP, What's the matter with PGP?, which still is relatively reasonable, and then the raving PGP Problem by people running a security consulting shop called Latacora. It's this second diatribe that made me write this post, because the amount of badmouthing …

  • Mailman3: "Cannot connect to SMTP server localhost on port 25"

    I've been a fairly happy mailman user for about 20 years, and I ran mailman installations for about a decade in the 2000s.

    Over the last week or so, I've spent more time setting up a mailman3 list off and on than I've spent with mailman guts in all the …

  • A Mail Server on Debian

    After decades of (essentially) using other people's smarthosts to send mail, I have recently needed to run a full-blown, deliver-to-the-world mail server (cf. Das Fürchten lernen; it's in German, though).

    While I had expected this to be a major nightmare, it turns out it's not so bad at all. Therefore …

  • Das Fürchten lernen

    Nachdem ich in einer Zeit, als es üblich war, einfach von überall her Mails anzunehmen, tatsächlich mal ein ganz klassisches Sendmail betrieben habe, hatte ich seit den späten 90er Jahren nur noch Mailserver, die bei Smart Hosts eingeliefert haben, also kurzerhand alle ausgehende Mail an den gleichen anderen Server weitergereicht …
