There was some left-over cruft from some extension (enigmail to be specific) that Thunderbird thought was installed when it really wasn’t. Cleaned up said cruft, and now I can read e-mail.

This is a printer-friendly version of the journal entry “E-mail works again!” from actuality.log. Visit http://emphaticallystatic.org/earlier/e-mail-works-again/ to read the original entry and follow any responses to it.

    Absolutely Fantastic! Your email is so well organized. I have to say I really envy it.

    Dude don’t start. It’s not so hard to make a bunch of folders and filter things to land in appropriate boxes based on content or origin address.

    While I am at it, I might as well tell you what else I do –
    1. I have a combination of hardcoded spam filters and an intelligently trained bayesian filter.
    2. Messages on mailing lists are sorted by threads, because that’s the most intuitive way of wading through the noise.
    Yes, I just make up rules like that.
    3. Messages on the more important, higher traffic folders (like the work folder) are further colour coded based on level of importance. So you know what’s from your adviser, mom or annoying friend who thinks her stupid joke forward is funny.
    4. Of course, sensitive mail is encrypted. (A major cause for a lot of confusion during my windows restoration debacle.)

    I do some other small things, but this is freaking mail sorting for crying out loud. I sound enough like a major geek already.
