Thanks to Andreas we recently discovered something great…


…and its name is Delta Chat!

Before you move away: No, it is not yet another messenger. Or is it?

It is something in between. Delta Chat uses email to transport its messages. Your email server.

  • Delta Chat does work with "autoconfig". Enter your mailcow email address and password and your are ready!
  • Delta Chat automatically encrypts messages using Autocrypt – no setup needed!
  • mailcow comes with a sieve prefilter to move all chats to the preconfigured DeltaChat folder (since commit 3dece1)
  • Communicate with any email recipient, every client uses their own email server.

So what do I need?

  • The app, get it here
  • A mailcow or basically any other email account
