If you do use other servers to send your Gmail address, you're likely
running afoul of Gmail's SPF and DMARC. Your messages also wouldn't be
DKIM signed by Gmail if you don't use Gmail's SMTP servers.
I wasn't aware of Thunderbird's lineage. I
wonder how much of
the original Netscape Mail is in Thunderbird, or even if Thunderbird
understands Netscape mailboxes.
I have no idea how much of the original code is still in there.
I /think/ that Thunderbird does (or at least it used to) use standard
mbox files for storage. So lots of things can handle that.
I was probably still using NCSA Mosaic for web
browsing in 1996.
I don't know that I ever used NCSA Mosaic. I should probably try it in
a VM running Windows 3x some day.
