I personally use Element but I think recommending Signal is a great step forward for the average person.

I agree the only thing with Signal is it needs a phone number, but the protocol that is solid. Its more practical to have people switch to signal from whatsapp in my opinion

Great option. Session is even more private, but a bit laggy. What’s missing is end-to-end encrypted voip.

Is the only advantage that you don’t need a phone number? If so, how does it compare against Wire (which is IMO a nearly perfect solution)

Delta Chat is an EMail client with steroids that aims to build a specification (Chat over IMAP) to adapt the infraestructure even more.

Thanks, got it. Is a good idea. I’ll start following it.

Do all the email servers have to make changes to support it? Dies the IMAP standard have to change to support it?
