Sylpheed

Sylpheed

Sylpheed is a simple, lightweight and featureful e-mail client based on the GTK+ GUI toolkit. It aims to combine a quick and responsive client, with a sophisticated interface, intuitive operation, as well as an abundant feature set.

Sylpheed uses a 3-paned display similar to the popular e-mail clients for Windows such as Outlook Express and Becky. Many commands are accessible with the keyboard like the Emacs-based mailers such as Mew and Wanderlust. This enables users to easily migrate to Sylpheed.

It stores mail in the MH Message Handling System.

It supports the following protocols: POP3, IMAP4rev1, SMTP, NNTP, SSL/TLSv1 (POP3, SMTP, IMAP4rev1, NNTP), IPv6.
