Is there any topic covering help for beginners?

Hi,
Is there any help here, for new members seeking information on setting up in respect of security issue and in particular email, you tube matters?

Hello, would you be kind enough to not title your posts in capitals please? It's regarded as shouting by some users.

Have you read the user manual, available by pressing Alt-F1? In addition to basic information, there are many links to the excellent tutorial videos created by Dolphin Oracle.

For advice on individual applications or settings, it is best to create a single post for each item.

You will soon be enjoying the full MX experience!

The wiki has articles on VPN and TOR for secure browsing connections. A wiki search on "security" would highlight those two articles. Also searching the manual on "security" gives a number of applicable entries. I could not find specific articles on email encryption.

How about a how to search thread so new users can find their own solutions?

https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic ... x-problem/

Example:

and videos for new and experienced users also

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFWlej ... 5uE9opXukQ

Just a standard advice I give to new antix users unaccustomed to using a lighter Window Manager without systemd.
Good luck and happy trails.

Most people concerned about secure email encrypt it with gpg, and many of those with an extension to their email program..so you could search for a Thunderbird extension that helps you with that, for example.

Thank you to all of you, it is exciting to see a world of options, to pacify my sweaty brow from the effects of an Anthropocentric attack.
Kind regards, Cjos
