PostPosted: Sat 14 Jun 2014, 20:03    Post_subject:  Mail Program Recommendation  

I'd like to use a light e-mail program and know about sylpheed but thought I'd ask if anything else along these lines might work well in Wary 5.3. I'm looking for something quite straight forward as my e-mail requirements are that: Quite straight forward. Don't need all the frills with the program in SeaMonkey. So should it be sylpheed or something even more humble?

Isn't webmail enough for your needs? (supposing your mail provider has a webmail interface).

I can only recomend Thunderbird that is what I use at work (in Windows), but perhaps it's bit heavy for your hardware.

BTW: you have an open thread about browsers, is it solved?
If it is, it's a good manner to edit the title of the post to add [solved] and a brief post telling how did you solve problem.

Bye.

Opera browser has a nice mail client. There won't be any updates for it,
though.

If you don't have a new fetish thunderbird 2 has been working here for years handling lots of mail.... much smaller than recent offerings.

we have around 8 email accounts from various servers so webmail is not the ideal solution and they often pee around with the sites making them slow or unworkable at times...not to mention unwanted ads and news in yer face.
gmx.com front page loses css on windows at the moment meaning the login boxes do not show...and on linux there is no horizontal scroll bar and so the login button is off the page.... joke funnies like that Very Happy

If light, fast, no-frills is what you want - Sylpheed is great. IMHO, it's only glaring shortcoming is it's inability to import MS Outlook address book file formats (there are workarounds/converters, but I've never gotten around to trying 'em). Doesn't do HTML either - but I consider that a bonus.

But Sylpheed does exactly what I need, in an easy to setup and pleasant interface. Small, stable and fast!
