email clients

Sylpheed – added 7/25/2007

Sylpheed is a simple, lightweight but featureful, and easy-to-use e-mail client (mailer, MUA) and adopts a 3-paned display similar to the popular e-mail clients for Windows such as Outlook Express. Sylpheed runs on Unix-like systems such as Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X, but also supports Windows! Sylpheed optionally supports the signing and encryption of messages by GnuPG, and the encrypted communication of POP3/IMAP4/NNTP over SSL/TLSv1. Sylpheed supports not only the major protocols such as POP3, IMAP4rev1 and SMTP, but also NNTP (NetNews). IPv6, which is the next-generation Internet protocol, is also supported by default.

Evolution – added 4/20/2007

Evolution is an incredibly versatile email/calendar/PIM that took the Linux world by storm a few years ago. It has been called an ‘Outlook replacement’ by every tech site from ZDNet to InfoWorld. Evolution played a major role in allowing the Linux desktop to move into the enterprise by being able to connect to Microsoft Exchange Server and schedule/accept Microsoft Outlook Meetings. Evolution for Windows now works on XP but plans are to include Vista asap.

nPOPuk – added 2/9/2007

Koma-Mail – added 8/1/2006

Courier – added 12/13/2005

Courier is the succesor of the acclaimed Calypso email program, a favorite of email users for years. Courier sets a new standard of excellence for Internet email clients. With the ability to turn off display of HTML mail and an encrypted address book, Courier is immune to current email “worms” that replicate themselves by harvesting email addresses from the Windows Address Book and forwarding themselves to all of your contacts. Combined with an outstanding array of features and an intuitive, configurable interface, Courier is the premiere Internet email alternative.

nPOP – added 7/24/2002

This email client allows you to access e-mail on a POP3 mail server on your Pocket PC or PC. It provides the function of common remote e-mail access. The mail displayed by nPOP is only the mail on the present on the server. Therefore, if mail is deleted from your server it will disappear from a list, even if the mail is displayed in the list. When you connect using nPOP, the mail is listed and you can see the header only. From that list you can select e-mail you want to receive on your Pocket PC or PC.

Mozilla Thunderbird – added 12/7/2003

Mozilla’s Thunderbird mail client is a redesign of the Mozilla mail component. Our goal is to produce a cross platform stand alone mail application using the XUL user interface language

Ultrafunk Popcorn – added 3/18/2004

Popcorn is an ultra-lightweight POP3/SMTP e-mail client, that allows you to read mail from a POP3 server directly, without downloading it to a local mailbox on your PC (although you can save mail messages to disk if you want to). This makes it ideal for “on the road” email access, and for scanning, reading and sending mail over slow internet connections. (development has stopped, but last version is here)
