"...At present, I use Netscape for my e-mail, which is far from ideal. There are other programs, but nothing really struck my fancy."

"That was, until I saw CSCMail. Now, as email programs go, judging from the screenshots this program looks very nice. While looks aren't everything, you don't want to spend hours staring at a program whose interface leaves a lot to be desired. It helps to have pretty things to look at. As I am sick of Netscape, I decided to grab the program."

"...CSCMail does look very promising, but be warned, if your Linux distribution isn't right up to date, then you may very well encounter problems similar to the ones I did. I can understand the developers wanting to stay current, but for the average Linux user who doesn't program, this sort of thing is a major annoyance and one of the biggest pains in Linux. When I started with Linux, I used to persist, but after a few months I realized that life is too short."
