Heinz Tschabitscher's enthusiasm for email takes to the limit what many users take for granted: electronic mail.
Heinz's experience with email stretches back to the spam-free days of local BBSs.
From writing programs to fill his own email needs, he has gone to reviewing hundreds of email programs and services from a typical user's—from your—perspective. From participating in early mailing lists, fetching files via email and rejoicing over every message received, he has gone to finding—and sharing—the best strategies to manage a deluge of personal, professional and junk email.
Since 1997, Heinz has been covering all aspects of email and other forms of online communication for About.com.
Howbeit studying at the university level for years (business informatics for a programming background and philosophy for the, well, discursive underpinnings), Heinz is a passionate autodidact.
By Heinz Tschabitscher:
Email and its offspring—like instant messaging for speedy two-way talk, social networking sites for contact management as well as secure communication and RSS feeds for smart content syndication—are vital internet services. They prompt us to chat for hours or write lengthy letters; they help us discuss ideas and share knowledge; they enrich our lives and drawing others closer.
On this site, we'll discover all the wonderful things you can do with email. You will find superior software and helpful hints for using internet communication to its fullest (and for getting rid of spam, too).
Getting in Touch
I encourage you to write me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments, hunches, insights, problems and questions you have. I love reading readers' messages and appreciate your writing in.
Due to the high email volume I may, alas, not be able to respond to you individually—however much I'd love to.
Thank you for understanding, and please do not let that discourage you from writing. Every message is important and helps me understand what moves or irks you.
