Standardizing on Mozilla?

Thursday July 3rd, 2003

Slashdot today asked "Which Organizations Have Standardized on Mozilla?" A lot of good stories and ideas about trying to get an organization to switch to Mozilla based solutions.

If we knew the answer to that question, then it would be far more reassuring. Unfortunately, there was nothing special that they did to make the mail disappear. Neither had used Mozilla before and were running a clean 1.0 release build (at the time)...

One of them was getting intermingled corrupted messages, which I as near as I could guess was the result of "null-character-in-email-causes-things-to-get-corrupted" .. the other opened up his email to find all his messages had mysteriously vanished! That same user later ran into a problem on a different machine where Mozilla somehow created duplicates of all his emails in his inbox. That wound up taking him hours of weeding out all the duplicates amongst hundreds and hundreds of mesages. Weird stuff...
