Hi everyone ! I discovered Open-Exchange while looking into mailbox.org and I have a bunch of questions about it/them. I hope there is some users of Mailbox.org+OX apps here which will be able to answer.
I’m looking into Mailbox.org as a possible solution for email and I have some questions I’d like to ask you for the best way to use my mailbox.org account regarding privacy into an iOS/Mac environment using a personal domain (I know it’s not a great starting point to be stuck on iOS but at this time that’s what I have) :
- I understand Caldav and Cardav do not support E2EE so I may plan to use something else for contacts and calendars (EteSync most probably, waiting to see version 2.0 next month but not sure yet or maybe self-hosting with Baïkal on a RaspberryPi ?) : would you suggest to just keep everything with Mailbox ?
- What is your opinion on the “drive” that Mailbox offer with the account ? Would you suggest to go with it and trust it ? (asking the question because If yes then I may go with the 25Go storage option, otherwise I’ll just keep the 1Euro per month for minimal storage and mails only).
- On iOS (I know, don’t have an Android anymore may most probably have one next year but in the meantime I’m stuck with iOS) I was very interested by the Open-Exchange Mail app as well as the Drive app (supposing I end up using the Mailbox Drive) : https://apps.apple.com/us/app/ox-mail-by-open-xchange/id1385582725 Do you have experience with the OX Mail app ? Does it integrates perfectly with Mailbox (encryption support etc… ) ? Or would you suggest to avoid it and just stuck with the stock Apple Mail app ?
- On Mac : supposing I end-up using the Drive then the setup would be Thunderbird for mail and OX Drive (they have an app for Mac) for storage. Any issue with this setup ?
If you have anything to add regarding Open-Exchange don’t hesitate, I’m curious about it (I didn’t know this thing before looking into mailbox.org).
