You're overthinking it, Valeri. This US gov't agency (which I work for as
a contractor), has (after much work in other directions, has apparently
thrown them out, who knows, they may change their (alleged) minds again),
and trust me, all of the *Nix servers here, that are doing *serious*
scientific research, are not going away. The mail system has been Exchange
all along, but with deciding to go to Oriface 365, they have determined a
policy that with that migration, they are going to *not* *run* IMAP (they
could if they wanted to). Without IMAP, I'm going to have to either
a) bring in the laptop that runs WinDoze (that sits at home for
and is theirs, and run that to read my freakin' email (and I
need synergy for when I have to copy and paste)l
b) run the damn webmail client, which would impact my productivity by
given that I normally deal with over 200 emails per day (2/3rds log
from out loghost, or logcheck). Webmail will make it take probably
as long to deal with, or
c) find a way to install and run Lookout, er, Outlook 365 under wine, or
Now, not that I haven't been annoyed at t-bird for several years now, but
webmail or outlook would be miserable... and I don't remember if webmail
lets me search, etc.
Does this make more sense? And, as I said, I really like, and am proud, of
working where I do (this *is* civilian sector), and like most of the folks
I'm working with, a number of whom I count as friends, and, well, I only
need low-power binoculars, not a large reflecting telescope to see
retirement headed my way, so I do *not* want to jobhunt.
