|Author/Date||My InScribe to Linux|
|I have Mepis and Xandros running on a couple of computers and it would be helpful under FAQs on how one (with almost no knowledge :-) could setup InScribe in Linux. The Preview feature and resulting control over downloading email is keeping me in windows way too much. thanks|
|How far have you got so far?
The procedure is pretty much:
|I'll try what you have suggested..
More to the point, Xandros has a preference for a .DEB package and I was wondering if one is available. I haven't done anything yet, but will let you know how I make out. Xandros doesn't necessarily handle formats it doesn't directly support very well and I've had a couple of surprises :-) I use MEPIS too, so I could try installing in this flavour... but my wife is happier in Xandros for it's simple interface.
In my change-over to Linux the one thing that keeps me in windows so much is the lack of really good email applications. I have used SimpleCheck for years and I am not in the habit of ever downloading email unless I know what I'm dealing with and of course the ability to delete it in a "preview" or "header" viewing.
InScribe (use in Windows) is an excellent "two account" solution and it's use in Linux would let me handle email more the way I want to.
"How far have you got so far?" Not far :-) After so many years in windows, and not getting any younger, I am approaching Linux very slowly. Of course this is to lessen the chance of getting really p__ed and tossing it all out the window.
