Claws Mail is an email client (and news reader)
Claws Mail is an email client (and news reader), based on GTK+, featuring
- Quick response
- Graceful, and sophisticated interface
- Easy configuration, intuitive operation
- Abundant features
- Robustness and stability
The appearance and interface are designed to be familiar to new users coming from other popular email clients, as well as experienced users. Almost all commands are accessible with the keyboard.
The messages are managed in the standard MH format, which features fast access and data security. You'll be able to import your emails from almost any other email client, and export them just as easily.
Lots of extra functionality, like an RSS aggregator, calendar, or laptop LED handling, are provided by extra plugins.
Claws Mail is distributed under the GPL.
Claws Mail for Mac requires Apple's X11 which is included in the "Optional Installs" package on the Mac OS X install disk. Actually it works also great with the X server obtained via Fink, or macports.
The Mac OS version is from 06-September-2007, while the latest source code release is version 3.3.1 from 23-February-2008 :-(
