A Kmail Rundown

Filed under
KDE
Software

We have so many ways to access email. Gone are the days of the desktop email client being the only route, and gone are the days of having to track down obscure IMAP and SMTP settings to get mainstream services to work.

We expect to be able to send and receive emails seamlessly to our phones, tablets, PCs and, before long, probably our clothes and fridges. We expect everything to stay in sync and – if we’re using a mainstream email service like Gmail or Yahoo! – we think it should just work.

Does KMail – the default Email client shipping with KDE – come up to the mark? Despite the ubiquity of web-based email and email apps, Desktop email clients still have their uses.

Getting Started

Kmail can be installed on pretty much any Linux distro and desktop – though it’ll work best with KDE as it’s designed to be integrated into the desktop.

Fedora: The Latest

  • Korora 22 Flash Update
    As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default.
  • Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom
    I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be commonly used these days that we didn’t have packaged. So I packaged them up, and put them in a new repository!
  • CUDA 7.0 enabled programs for Fedora 22
    I’ve udpated the CUDA version in the Fedora 22 Nvidia repository, it now contains CUDA 7.0.28 along with the cuFFT 7.0.35 patch. Note that from this version, CUDA is x86_64 bit compatible only, so there are no more i386 packages. There is still the cudart library available for 32 bit, but I don’t think it’s worth packaging.
  • Secure Boot — Fedora, RHEL, and Shim Upstream Maintenance: Government Involvement or Lack Thereof
    Note that there are parts of this chain I’m not a part of, and obviously linux distributions I’m not involved in that support Secure Boot. I encourage other maintainers to offer similar statements for their respective involvement.
  • Remi repository is changing
    The "remi" repository exists for > 10 years, it have changed a lot, and some recent changes worth to be explained.
