Errr, ok, i have re-read this and think i misunderstood a few things.
Yes, people do keep going on about security and the dangers of the
internet (usually hypocritically) but we do keep your personal data
about as safe as, or possibly safer than the Pentagon keeps there's or
the space station keeps their command&control systems, or the
stock-exchanges around the world keep their's. Like all of them we
use one of many unix-based systems. Hmm, not all stock-exchanges
are as safe and definitely not all banks! Windows is ok as a desktop
but it's not good enough when security is critical. There are many
things that would be considered a security problem in unix-based
systems that Windows doesn't even worry about at all, such as being
forced to shut-down a machine.
1. You keep your existing internet connection. If you want to use a
different one from your existing one that has nothing to do with us
and if you do change then that doesn't affect us at all. As long as
you get access to the internet that's all that matters really.
2. Your hotmail account or other email accounts remain the same.
Again that is nothing to do with us. if you change to a different
email account then you would have to re-subscribe with the new one.
So, it's probably easier to just keep the one you have.
Your emails come through your internet connection but if you changed
email account or got a 2nd one then that would come through your
internet connection too. You could have lots of different email
accounts with lots of different companies or even lots from the same
company but it's usually better to keep it simple and just have 1 or 2
email accounts. Your "internet service provider" (=isp) does not need
to know about what email accounts you have. If you do ever change
your isp then they also don't need to know about your email accounts.
Your isp might want to know your email address so that they can write
3. You can keep using Outlook. It is just a tool for reading
emails. If you have lots of email accounts then you can probably get
Outlook to collect them all for you but you would have to configure
Outlook to do that. If you are temporarily without internet access
then Outlook can probably show you your old emails but it just wont
get any of the new ones until you connect again.
People may tell you that you "have to" change to something else for
any of those 3 things but that is much the same as telling you to eat
greens or eat more fruit. They might think other tools are better for
you but it's your choice as to what you use.
Please ignore my earlier post! I thought the question was about

You may have some misunderstanding about this email list. I'm no
but what I can say is this and others will no doubt correct me and
more info too:
(1) this is an email-based discussion/ support list for people using
LibreOffice, an open source alternative to MS Office. It does not
require you to join anything (although you can subscribe for
receive replies to your emails - hence I've cc'd you, since I
if you subscribed or not). The good news is that because LibO is open
source, the chances for the NSA to have a backdoor access to this
is vanishingly small ... although, of course, using Microsoft as your
operating system already means that the NSA have a backdoor into your
system - that is to say, that Microsoft is a surveillance enabled
in its own right. This is a link http://tinyurl.com/m2hnbv6 to a
search for microsoft nsa backdoor giving 524,000 results.
(2) this will in no way stop the NSA from reading your emails. If you
want to do that, you have some options. One is to review
http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll412.xml find out who voted
the Amash Amendment and lobby those to actually represent the
of the American people in matters of privacy and civil liberties (2nd
and 4th Amendment Rights) rather than fuel the paranoid Security
Industry agenda for Full Spectrum Dominance. Another would be to

(3) If you wanted a more secure email, sign up for Hush Mail which
claims to encrypt your emails and not to record IP addresses
http://www.hushmail.com <http://www.hushmail.com/>or just create
phoney Google accounts, and use a
proxy or a VPN to log into and use these.
(4) This site does not provide an ISP, so you will have to keep your
existing Net provider unless you decide to opt for an alternative.
I hope this helps clarify some things for you.
