So yes, I'm using Becky! as a MUA + an outdated GnuPG plugin on Windows
XP, but functionality is somewhat crippled for anything other than GnuPG

Nope, they dropped support for XP (specifically the browser part) a while
ago, which thing never really affected me since I use a third party
browser which I interface with the "expert bundle" exe that they continue
to distribute. Of course, that's an gross oversimplification of what's
actually going on this computer, but you catch my drift.

As far as secmail.pro is concerned, it's not possible to use it with
Becky! because there's no server-side support for SMTP, POP3 or IMAP, so
I'm writing directly from semail's web interface.

Unfortunately since practically every single internet service in existence
(be it mail, fora or otherwise) has been in bed with the worldwide private
data collection operation going on right now (lookup PRISM and the
ShadowGate documentary) it's no longer possible (and so it's been for
nearly a decade now) to anonymously register any type of account anywhere,
meaning I'm technically shunned from the Internet and it's nothing short
of a miracle that I'm able to post here at all. I'm actually shocked this
place hasn't been hijacked by vpn-hating cloudflare and the google captcha
nazis because that's true everywhere else.

Currently I use another free, anonymous e-mail service called TorBox which
does have SMTP/POP3 support for everyday communications, though that's
only viable for people operating within the TOR network as it's got no
clearweb support unlike secmail itself, which at the end of the day is
kind of a useless thing anyways given it's blacklisted status (and that
completely without justification) among most every big and small e-mail
provider out there.
