Yep. You're the one who needs to interact with them because as a user of
the program, it's you they're trying to please (more than me, at least).

Can't work out how to interact with a corporation and get into
correspondence about a bug in their software? That's probably a good
sign you shouldn't be using their software :-)

You'll know your needs more than me. Maybe you could start with
Thunderbird (available in Debian as “Icedove” because of trademark
issues); that's a good all-round client that behaves well.

Thanks. This is a contentious issue, and some people want to mangle your
messages;but that doesn't mean it's still open for debate — one side is
right :-)
