Email

Our emails are:

These are the defaults, regardless of other directions you may find to get in touch with us (?!)

Fp.laussy.jpg My first email ever was fabrice.laussy@goules.nat.fr.

It later become laussy@nat.fr, and then I passed through something like a dozen of other directions, free, yahoo, univ-bp, sheffield, uam, soton, tum, uam again, etc.

My first email linked to a so-called permanent (?!) position is F.Laussy@wlv.ac.uk. Time will show if that is more permanent than the others.

Julia and Luz's emails were opened on 21 March (2021).

Gmail

Gmail.png is great (as is most of Google) and this is the provider we use. Fp.laussy.jpg I run it since 27 February (2007).

Labs

If (when) a Labs feature breaks, and you're having trouble loading your inbox, there's an escape hatch. Use https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?labs=0.

Others

Beyond the web interface, which is okay although not that great, it is useful to have a more powerful application. We like Kmail, the KDE default. For years now we have been using the web application directly, which is good enough.
