I’ve decided to make the switch to pure Web mail. It’s been a long time coming.
About three years ago, I got sick of having to sync a POP account in two locations, so I switched to IMAP. I’ve loved that set-up ever since. I have an account at Fusemail, which I pay something like $2 a month for, and I have two Thunderbird installations hooked to it — work and home.
However, one thing I’m tired of is not having the same settings from each install carry over to the other. Labels, filters, spam settings, address books, etc. — I have to set each of these up in both places. Not to mention little things like the arrows that tell you if you replied or forwarded a message that can’t be manually duplicated. (I’ve complained about this problem twice — here and here.)
So, given this, I’m going to give up my beloved Thunderbird and IMAP and move to Web mail. I’m interested in the new Yahoo! client that Zawodny keeps raving about (yes, Fusemail has a Web client, but I hate it).
Has anyone else made the big switch? How did it go?
