my issue is with my ISP, not my email provider which is protonmail. and it's currently set up such that my ISP gets nothing from my email, and i'm not using my ISP's email service, so whether or not i could is immaterial.

this all got started through my interest in setting up a protonmail-provided beta application that, when i get it installed and configured, will enable me to do all this with kmail as my frontend client. among the things into which it devolved are reasons one might want to try to secure email, how one-ended encryption is not useful for many purposes, the virtues or lack thereof of various package handlers, and now how i could do what i'm already successfully doing some other way if i'm willing to go to trouble that the current arrangement doesn't require.

all we need is someone to angrily belittle those who have not mastered emacs and we'll have the perfect linux mailing list thread!
