LinuxPower: The Unknown Star of the GTK+/GNOME E-mail Universe [Evolution Mailer]

"One of the most anticipated releases of the Linux world is the upcoming Evolution mailer by Helix Code. The features it promises in regard to advanced filtering and sorting, calendar integration, Palm Pilot integration and more has no parallel in the world of free software."

"But even if the hackers at Helix Code are making great strides forward we still need something to keep us going while we are waiting. There is of course no lack of e-mail programs out there, with applications like Balsa, Linuxpower's very own Gmail, Eucalyptus, Grin and a host of others. I have earlier looked at some of these for my own use, but have always ended up feeling that they are a bit too early in development to be usable in daily life. So in the meantime I have ended up using the e-mail program included in Netscape Communicator, a choice which has some limitations."

"So a couple of days ago I stumbled upon a mailer called CSC Mail which stands for Cyberspace Cowboy Mail of all things. It was written in Perl using the GTK+ bindings by Steven Kordik with help from a host of others including Rob Malda of Slashdot fame. The version of this mailer was 1.6.1 which made me a bit curious, since it signaled an application that the developer at least considered rather feature complete."
