    M@il.ru Agent in English?

    Since last few days i have been using mail.ru service for pop3 access... its the best service i have ever used.

    today i downloaded mail.ru agent (messenger) ... tho its interface is in russian i found it too good !!

    setup file is less than 2 MB .. interface is like Gmail but with features like ICQ... its sorta cool ... tho using the features become a bit difficult as i am not very good at Russian. Also my windows is not a russian version so most of the letters appears junk maybe because of different encoding.

    i was just wondering whether they have mail.ru agent (messenger) in English language? Would be amazing !!

    thanks

    Mail.Ru Agent protocol is open - http://agent.mail.ru/protocol.html
    You may write your own client application

    It was a joke.
    Anyway Mail.Ru had opened protocol. It means that an alternative client (plugin for Miranda, for example) will appear soon. Just wait.

    P.S.
    Please, correct my mistakes in English. Thanks.

    If you're still at the forum and you still can't find Mail.ru for English sign up, here it is. This is the link I used to get my Mail.ru English account. The Ads and stuff will still be in Russian but that's just extra practice learning Russian. Btw, Mail.ru is awesome and the themes are way cool!

    Registration - Mail.Ru mail

    Oh, and sign up is way easy and mail transfer is really fast!

    Interesting comment. Just thinking why you want to use a Russian email service when you don't know the language. Is that really what it's come to now...

    I assume your reasons for wanting to use Mail.ru has to do with privacy and not using a service that the NSA and similar can't read like an open book. As we discussed elsewhere in this forum, you should probably look at I2P and similar technologies, although staying away from the likes of Gmail and Hotmail is probably a good start. They can still intercept your message en route though, unless it's encrypted - don't forget that.

    Also it's not unfeasible that while the NSA can't access Mail.ru the Russian security services might. Don't know if that concerns you or not.
    We don't know, because there hasn't been any whistleblowers. I'd like to live under the illusion that they've got better things to do that save and scan everyone's emails, and that they actually respect privacy, but what do I know...

    There are also free email services in smaller politically low-profile countries that you could look for.

    Wow! I didn't even think about that.
    Hanna's right. If you're just wanting to avoid the NSA thing then a Latin mail service would probably be really cool and tons easier. I heard that Spanish is a really easy language to learn.
    As for me, I have gmail and mail.ru cause I don't really care if they read my mail. They would probably think it was really boring anyway, lol!
    But if you do wanna learn Russian then Mail.ru is awesome! I'm always curious about the ads and I wanna read them so that helps me learn even more Russian!

    That's a great tip. I wouldn't know any, but it's true that Spanish is [relatively] easy, at least in comparison with Russian.

    Gmail isn't even very good -- it's just too fussy and behaves weirdly. I'm dropping it altogether, I never liked it anyway.
