Full Article Attached Mail/News Performance Effort Underway

Friday November 2nd, 2001

Seth Spitzer today sent an update out about what the Mail/News team is doing to meet their goals for Mozilla 1.0. They'll be focusing almost 100% of their effort for at least the next two milestones (0.9.7, 0.9.8) on Footprint and Performance of the various parts of Mail, News, and Addressbook. Not only will they be focusing on it, they'll also be locking down their part of the tree and only accepting performance or footprint fixes. Very few exceptions will be made.

Alma picked Mac PGP because she thought it had a decent UI. IIRC I think she suspects other mail encryption tools have at least as many usability problems as she found in her study of PGP.

But you're right that S/MIME and other encryption schemes (e.g., Lotus Notes' scheme) are dominant in large organisations. I think that's because CAs and certificate hierarchies are naturally suited to large hierarchical organisations, and PGP's web of trust is more suited to loose-knit groups and networks of individuals.
