Re: Email client for Macbook

In reply to a post by BatBoy:
The business license is for you to use on 5 of your PCs. If you want to share with others, they will need their own product key.


Well, that maybe so but it works just fine. And while it continues to work just fine I will continue to help people out with the licence slots I don't need

Happy New Year smile

I think I pay £7.80 a month over the year - otherwise it's about £9.40 a month

OK, I shan't go down that route then.

The home license covers 5 users in the same household, the business license covers 1 user with up to 5 devices. I am afraid you are breaking the license agreement with Microsoft by handing out your keys. You may believe you are 100% covered and legal but I am afraid you will find you are not and that despite paying the money you have no legal right to the software as you are giving your keys to others.

So, even though I wasn't saying in the first post that you were doing anything dodgy it appears the actual result is that you are - whether you think you are or not.

Essentially you may as well point people to illegal downloads of it as the license on those is just as valid as the license you are giving them for their use.

I dare say you won't be happy with this post and will believe I am having a go at you - I am not.

I had no idea that it was wrong. I just asked MS support on chat and the guy (Diego) said it was fine.

But I will head your caution. However what's the say they aren't borrowing the machine I own? Nothing says that machine has to be in my possession all the time. 2 of my machines are owned by me/the company and permanently with employees. Not sure if that counts?

Anyway - that's probably just splitting hairs, cheers again for making me aware.

OK, interesting response from MS chat support - maybe they don't mind then. I have a number of dealings with MS in the business world and they can sometimes be really good but sometimes really bad - and their licensing model is absolute hell to work out - I met one of their experts and she said she spends most days just learning about the changes that have been made to the licensing terms that day.

But, if MS say it is ok then carry on - I would personally keep a log of that chat though wink

Cheers for the reply.

I've got it by e-mail from someone there. And it's stored. I've had to store it offline because after migration from Gmail to them they lost all my e-mail and my backup .pst didn't work so I had to start again.

That will teach me! :/

I have never liked the way that the Mac Mail App works with GMail, particularly with the way it handles spam.

I'd recommend both Postbox and Airmail as alternatives.

Airmail is now significantly the cheaper of the two to purchase, but Postbox is now a lifetime licence.

Agreed. I use postbox as well it's really good. It's a shame it only integrates with Dropbox, One Drive and Box. But I found opening up a free Degoo.com account and then using the send files feature gets around it. Dropbox is too low storage and the others are just pants.

The OP mentioned Thunderbird but no-one else - shame, Thunderbird works very well and I have been using it for many, many years on both Linux and Macs. Very stable, very reliable, assorted add-ons (like browsers) and generally easy-to-use.

A friend of mine uses "Mutt" but really...

I heard last year that Thunderbird was dead https://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/04/26/thunderbird...
