Farewell Message to the X-Notifier Community


Hello, X-Notifier community,

I've been with Tobwithu for 15 to 20 years. While the forum has been replaced 2 or 3 times, this one has stood for over 11 years.

I use this extension for Firefox and Thunderbird. It was great in the past, primarily because some websites like Hotmail don't offer IMAP and must be accessed via the website. That's where X-Notifier comes in to check the email.

However, it's been getting worse, especially with the introduction of second verification authorization (Two-Factor Authentication, 2FA), similar to Gmail and other platforms.

It's challenging for Tobwithu to write a program without knowing the background. For example, Gmail won't provide Tobwithu with the code necessary to check email due to security reasons, and other mail hosts follow suit.

I must thank Tobwithu for his effort for the past 15-20 years!

 I requested Tobwithu to authorize the "User Guide" about 10 years and 8 months ago, and I haven't updated it since 5 years and 7 months ago.

Because I'll be moving away from Firefox, I'm currently opting for the Brave browser.

Nowadays, most email hosts allow us to use IMAP and check email.

It's time for me to bid farewell to all X-Notifier users. This will be my last time logging off, saying goodbye with tears... bye bye...

(I might check again several times with your reply. You cannot reply inside the "User Guide," but you can post on the main X-Notifier forums.)
