"We are updating the security of your university e-mail....The most secure way to access your e-mail is Outlook. For Linux use your Web Browser" Challenge accepted! Oh look Davmail does Office365 Modern authentication. Oh and Thunderbird still works. Also actually can encrypt the e-mail from the client so its unreadable by the university... And look this all works on Linux. Plus, no Geolocation! Yes, probably not the most secure way but still. Also sensitivity labels do not work but OpenPGP!

Now, we wait the Power10 bump in the second half. nextplatform.com/2022/07/19/bi They updated the app.... The arithmetic has dropped to a new low!
