Happy "I love Free Software Day" everyone 💕

We would like to use this opportunity to let you know that K-9 Mail needs your help.

If you have an HN account you can help to spread the word by upvoting:

@k9mail if you are located in Europe, maybe get in contact with @NGIZero, they have explicitly free software grants and I'm sure K9mail would qualify.

Otherwise, is there a way to donate without Liberapay? Like using "classic" IBAN (cuts out all the middleman fees)?

@sheogorath Liberapay supports bank transfers via IBAN (using Stripe). The fees are minimal.

If you really want to, you can also transfer money directly (put "K-9 Mail" in the reference field). See
This has the downside of not showing up in the Liberapay statistics.

@k9mail Just started sponsorship via GitHub. Keep up the good work cketti.

Cheers 🎉

@k9mail Okay, you shamed me into it. I'm a cheap SOB, but since you're the best open source email client with integrated(ish) PGP, I really should help support you. Thanks for all your efforts.

@ericphelps @k9mail pep is a good recommendation also, especially for people who are not familiar with PGP bit want security.

@jawsh Well, thanks for the tip about P≡P. I'll give it a try!
But I won't tell the K9 dev I'm considering jumping ship. And I'll keep supporting him rgardless.

@ericphelps I use K9 myself. But pep is a neat project. I love seeing apps/programs that simplify things for general users. Especially when it's security related.

@jawsh Well, I installed P≡P and darned if I can find where to import my keys. I think they might have made things too simple.

@ericphelps it sets the keys up itself. I'm not sure if you can import your own custom keys or not.
