"It's fast: Claws Mail has to be one of the fastest to open applications I have seen in the Linux operating system. In the time it takes Thunderbird to open I can have Claws Mail open and composing a new email. It really is that fast.

"It's flexible: Claws Mail does what you want it to do. If there is a behavior you do not like you can change it. And you're not limited to the few configurations you have in Thunderbird. Claws Mail has NUMEROUS options that can be tooled to precisely fit your needs. You can even easily create templates in Claws Mail to handle the formatting of your new mail, replies, and forwards.

"It's extensible: Claws Mail also has an easy to use plug in system that allows you to include many other features. Yes, Thunderbird has add ons galore, but with Thunderbird you are pretty much limited to Addons to extend the features of the email client. With Claws Mail you can use plugins, templates, scripts, actions, pre/post processing rules, filters, you name it."
