really somewhat kinda abit excited about using a desktop client to manage my Gmail account. The app in question: Thunderbird.
The thing isn’t accessing Gmail from a dedicated program per se, but having it synchronise that matters. So if you’re geeky enough to know what Post Office Protocol (POP) is, Thunderbird allows for IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol). It’s good for managing bloated Gmail – if you get through downloading the whole lot for editing offline. Otherwise you’ve got to deal with a delay (Tbird interfacing with Gmail) with each action you take.
Bubble got burst when I got into the office and it didn’t work. Ah well..
Got this nasty surprise when I opened up Bloglines though…
Now I need a desktop RSS reader (sans ads). Recommendations anyone?
