www.gnupg.org unaccessible ? (Adam Pavelec)

If you are referring to web sites that allow HTTP (preferably HTTPS) access
to e-mail servers,
I was quite pleasantly pleased with one of the packages that is available
for use on Linux.  It
also provided POP3 and IMAP4 access to the same account.  I've also had a
working Microsoft
Exchange implementation with roughly the same features, but it was
incredibly expensive and
only offerred a small speed improvement over the free Linux implementation.
These software
packages have the advantage that your Netscape messenger can use the IMAP4
features when
you have a high speed connection from your home or office, or use the POP3
access when you
dial up your lap top from the hotel room over a modem, then when you are in
an internet cafe in
Paris and don't have your laptop along, their browser can access the web
mail version.  All 3
work seamlessly on the same e-mail accounts.

But I would never suggest that anyone should accept the limitations that are
inheirent with
most web-based e-mail services like Hotmail, etc.

On the other hand, if by HTML e-mail you are referring to HTML formatting of
e-mail contents,
I have come to equate this with spamming -- wanton self-absorbed abuse of
the freedom of
the internet.  The vast majority of the HTML formatted e-mail I receive, and
come to think of
it the vast majority of the e-mail bandwidth that I receive, is indeed
unsolicited and unwanted
commercial advertising.

It looks like the machine is alive, and the web server is responding, but it
doesn't seem to be serving any content right now.

An off-topic question:

What are your opinions on HTML e-mail?  In response to a previous post re:
attaching Public Key information to an e-mail, personally, I have been using
a template such as the one being used in this message which points to the
search results of a Public Keyserver.  I understand that a lot of veterans
despise HTML e-mail.  So, what are *your* thoughts?!?
