    No, but I’d like to have a working CLI mail client, even just to check and mark as read.

    I use multiple accounts (university and Gmail), how do neomutt works with this kind of workload?

    Do I have to setup a MTA?

    Since most email are (sadly) html, how could I read these?

    1. 2

      I normally use Mutt with multiple accounts. There are several ways you can set that up, and a lot of them are decently documented. I use something very similar to this.

      It’s not necessary to run your own MTA; I use Mutt’s built-in SMTP support with multiple GMail accounts with no issues.

      Most of the people and services I communicate with send a plaintext version of the email alongside the HTML version, so I have a lot less HTML trouble than expected. However, for HTML-only email, the best option I could find is to save the HTML file to the disk and use a web browser to read it. It should be fairly easy to create a macro for that in Mutt.

      1. 4

        I have a .mailcap file setup with the below. It does a pretty good job letting me view what I need from HTML emails. text/html; lynx -dump %s; copiousoutput; nametemplate=%s.html

        1. 1

          Thank you for your the inputs, I’ll check out (neo) mutt as soon as possible.

        $39 is a com­pletely fair price for your new knowl­edge, and com­pa­ra­ble to what you’d pay for a printed book.

        Any plans on having a printed book for sale? I’d be willing to this if I got a hardbound brick to sit on my desk.

        1. 1

          Check out the “About the Author” page.

          Do you plan to release this book as a paper­back? No.

          I hope some openbsd folks give myrddin a serious try. It basically has the same model as C, except you get bounds checking and pattern matching. I think it is a great lightweight language with good security characteristics.

          It will work well with pledge for example. One issue I can see is it doesn’t use the system memory allocator, or have proper ASLR support (yet). But there is lots of potential.

          1. 11

            I’ll get behind that statement. I’ve given myrddin a try and like what I’ve seen. Once a stable version has been released I’d like to get it added to our ports tree.

            You can also view this from the OpenSMTPD domain.

              How does one configure it? Does resolv.conf point to rebound or to rebound’s forward server(s)?

              1. 4

                Somewhat undecided. Right now it just reads an IP address out of rebound.conf but if rebound becomes “the resolver” then perhaps it will read resolv.conf instead.

                1. 2

                  In /etc/rebound.conf: 8.8.8.8

                  In /etc/resolv.conf: 127.0.0.1

                1. 1

                  Finally something reasonable!

                  Are there plans to push this into base along with libsodium? Or just as a port/package?

                  1. 1

                    It’s just something I wanted to do. There was a kind of pressure to make signify into more than it is; now it doesn’t need to be.

                    1. 2

                      If you put up a release archive somewhere I’ll make a port for it.

                  1. 1

                    Cool! I’ve been using preev.com for a while now. Any advantages this has over that?

                    1. 3

                      If simplicity is an advantage then it has that. Preev has more features like converting to different currencies and from different BTC amounts.

                      Free Mavericks upgrade… I was not expecting that.

                      1. 2

                        All the way from Snow Leopard too.

                        1. 1

                          If Microsoft releases Windows 9 for free, do you think Apple will pay people to upgrade to the next OS X? :)

                          1. 2

                            Giving old hardware a free software upgrade that enables it to run newer apps is a nice way of proving to the user how slow their old hardware is, as evidenced by older iPhones getting new iOS and people complaining about how laggy it is.

                            It is kind of strange that desktop OS upgrades are expected to cost money but mobile phone and tablet OS upgrades are expected to be free.

                        1. 1

                          Without actually trying, is Markdown supported in your reply like with normal comment submissions?

                          1. 1

                            Yes, you can use markdown.

                          1. 1

                            Given this is from an OpenBSD dev, it is a bit strange to be Linux only, no?

                            1. 1

                              I see *BSD support is listed in TODO, nice!

                              1. 1

                                It looks like kqueue(2) and in turn *BSD support was added. Commit enabling support.

                            1. 1

                              Didn’t Joris work on OpenCVS?

                              1. 3

                                I quickly threw together an OpenBSD port for xbanish. Once there is an official release and the tree is unlocked I can submit/import it.

                                1. 2

                                  Did you have any particular hardware in mind? What about the software side of things? Can we assume it would be built on top of OpenBSD?

                                  1. 2

                                    My first thought is a tiny Soekris/Alix box running OpenBSD with probably a small web GUI for simple administration tasks (and things like “test whether my internet service works without the tunnel”). However, I’m thinking maybe some kind of ARM box would be better for energy/size, but OpenBSD wouldn’t run on it. I haven’t really nailed down any specifics yet.

                                  1. 1

                                    Anyone here planning to go?

                                    1. 2

                                      I need to double-check my schedule, but I was planning on sponsoring and attending.

                                      1. 1

                                        That would be great! I’m attempting to work it out in my schedule right now as well. Maybe I’ll see you there.

                                      2. 2

                                        I also hope to attend.

                                        1. 1

                                          Excellent!

                                      1. 2

                                        The above link produced a corrupt pdf for me. I had to download it directly from the site.

                                        1. 1

                                          That (currently) redirects to a 404 on Github. I’m guessing it was supposed to end up here: https://github.com/rsms/sol

                                          1. 1

                                            Github Pages were down for a few. The link should be working again.
