  5. Thank you for the entertaining commentary on trolls. I needed the laugh today and stumbled across your vid while searching for MAPI info. I am happy to see you taking a stand and asserting your dominance. Keep up the great work and for some reason you remind me of a MSFT premier EXO engineer i worked with last year or so.

  6. I wonder if Linux will ever wise up and make software easy enough for
    the newbie to install? That's how Windows got so popular. But then,
    perhaps Linux coders like to keep it all confusing so as to appear wise.
    What a paradox! LOL!

  7. I think you are exaggerating a bit on the difficulties of setting up and running a mail server. Even for an absolute beginner, there are docker images which can be run with a simple docker pull command. Also, the whole "protection from spam" thing that email providers are supposed to offer, is highly debatable. I think that the main reason that centralized mail services mark as spam anything, is pretty much to keep away the competition and any rising open source self-hosted solutions. I once set up a portable smtp server and a mass mailer and spammed 100.000 emails from my university's network. The last emails I added were my own Gmail, yahoo, and outlook ones. Around half emails were delivered and the ones reaching my inboxes were not marked as spam because the source ip was of a reputable university (even though no encryption whatsoever was present, and the body was a single line of repeated text).
    Just my 2 cents…

  8. Did you really tell all of us that it's better to just pay to simplify things. That's not how any of us got here. Breaking down complex computer issues is what we do.
