Rainloop? What? Sounds like something from a 1990’s rave dosen’t it. Fear not, we are not returning to the 1990’s. The rainloop in question is a very good web based email client I have been using for the past few weeks.

Rainloop is a very fast, very secure and highly configurable web based email client. It is also highly secure. I deployed this 3 weeks ago mainly for testing purposes for my Virtual Office Product set. Thing is. It passed testing with such flying colours I removed the roundcube email client from my intranet! I offer Squirrel and Roundcube clients as part of thee product set and this Rainloop from my testing has a lighter footprint, faster load and also handle multiple domains on the same client. I am very, very impressed with this product as well. Security is excellent too. Configuration is an absolute doddle also.

The Rainloop team have done a fantastic job here and I must say I do look forward to commending this product most warmly to my clients. For those of you who use Owncloud or Nextcloud there is a lovely Rainloop integration available from the app repositories of both . This is an excellent bonus and another feather in Rainloop’s cap in my opinion. I have had some issues with email integration apps for Owncloud in the past and this works straight from the download only requiring the usual configuration data that any email client anywhere would need to be able to operate. The same goes for Nextcloud.

The final bonus is the documentation. Detailed, punchy to the point, not overbearing to read with high quality relevant information really easy to find 🙂

I am very pleased with Rainloop and I wish the team and the product continued success for the future.

It gets Five stars from me!

Jeremy Corbyn Sent Me An Email

Some regular readers of these pages may recall a little bit of fun I had with the Labour Party earlier this year, which saw me laughing at their data control and list management skills. Those of you with short memories can refresh them here! Anyway within hours of being elected as leader, Jeremy decides to drop me a line. You can see a screenshot below.   I have to say I do find this ironic. Maybe however this is what Jeremy really thinks of Ed!

I do find the national curriculum interesting

971215_10152253033370795_1361658270_nThis little nugget was sent out by Ewell Grove School, a school in Surrey which my daughter attends. I have always had my doubts about the standards of both teaching and management at this school and today when this dropped into my inbox my suspicions were confirmed. What have they been teaching my daughter??? Now all I have to do is convince my ex-wife that my daughter should be removed from this school! Easier said than done!
