    Email security: Webmail versus app-based email


    By Fred Langa

    Is using a local software-based email manager safer than browser-based email and how do you make both types more secure? Plus: A reader's results after a year of automated PC maintenance; a missing Group Policies Editor; and a high-quality, free, online Linux Foundation training course.

    Appreciate the tip about the Linux Foundation training course; just what I was looking for. I've written code in everything from Fortran II to C++ and need to apply a little oil to some somewhat rusty wheels.
    Regards,

    Exclamation But not SSDs

    Plus: A reader's results after a year of automated PC maintenance; a missing Group Policies Editor

    But you might not want to set up automated defrags of SSDs!

    Sort of, Paul, but several SSD manufacturers specifically advise against going that route. What they do recommend is making sure that AHCD is selected in the BIOS and that TRIM is enabled in the OS. That should address whatever generic frag prevention is needed.

    Believe it or not, check out this short piece from PCWORLD which I just got today. The last paragraph on page two sums up this reviewer's view on our topic: http://www.pcworld.com/article/20475...sd.html?page=2
