Claws Mail: Mail with Attitude

(Other stories by Joe Brockmeier)

"Want to take full control of your email? Tired of the limitations of Webmail, or GUI clients that are designed for users who only get a handful of emails every day. It’s time to bring out the heavy guns and start using Claws.

"Modern mail user agents (MUAs) tend to hide as much complexity from the user as possible. Claws, bless its speedy little heart, doesn’t. Claws is extremely configurable, feature-rich through the use of plugins, and can be keyboard-driven to satisfy users who want the speed of text-based mailers like Mutt with a decent GUI.

"Claws is a fork of the Sylpheed mailer. Initially, Claws was the “bleeding edge” development build of Sylpheed, but they diverged and Claws has been going great guns ever since. Note that Sylpheed is also actively developed and the two have quite a bit in common, but I’d pick Claws as it seems to be leading in features."
