In setting up my own company and it’s internal tools and services and supporting infrastructure, the ony thing I haven’t figured out how to solve “really well” is Email, Calendar and Contacts 😢 All the options that exist “suck”.

@adi@twtxt.net That sadly sits in the “sucks” bucket in both “operational complexity” and “user experience”. You really can’t beat the operational simplicity of standing up Poste.io or the user experience of FastMail, or Gmail. So far we don’t have a godo self-hosted solution that fits both bills to date.

@prologic@twtxt.net I use the gmail webapp for work, and I have to say that over the years it’s gotten less and less usable. There are so many little usability things that it’s bad at.

There are issues like that scattered all over the app. I suspect they spend most of their energy on the spyware side of gmail and dedicate less to making it a useful app for end users (which seems to be true of their search engine too).
