In the Modest, n900 default (not that there are many alternatives) mail client, you can’t save the email you send to server. Not implemented. If an IMAP user, which is the one who usually wants to keep his messages in order, comes to n900 with all the glory, he will have to manually drag his mail from “Sent” folder on n900 (shared between accounts btw) to “Sent” folder on the IMAP server. Great.

Now, some people have noted this injustice and opened brainstorm (what is here to storm if one has brains!?) and a bug (certainly it is). Should I hope that this will be FIXED? I bet I shouldn’t.

Check this out:

anyway: the two options (copy and bcc) are not exclusive of each other.  the
two email clients I checked offer both things.  'mutt' also has both options
(and many more, obviously).

The maemo community member offers his opinion as contribution based on his own experience. Sounds good. It does. As contribution. Two email clients checked. Fair number. But I just can’t stand the mutt thing … No really, what’s the point of it? To let people know you have such big balls with all the white hair around that you still use mutt in 2010?

And that’s not a rare case, reading the forums, bugzilla, wiki … There are two types of opinion contributions

  1. Mutter, the one who offers to use a device marketed by nokia as a PHONE as a mainframe terminal
  2. Bullshitter, the one who doesn’t care at all a wants an iphone

That’s it, just can’t stand the mutt thing ….
