Sylpheed-0.9.6claws: description + notes

Sylpheed is an e-mail client (and news reader) based on GTK+, running on X Window System, and aiming for

The appearance and interface are similar to some popular e-mail clients for Windows, such as Outlook Express, Becky!, and Datula. The interface is also designed to emulate the mailers on Emacsen, and almost all commands are accessible with the keyboard. You'll figure out the usage if you have ever used some e-mail clients for Windows, or Mew or Wanderlust.

The messages are managed by MH format, and you'll be able to use it together with another mailer based on MH format (like Mew). You can also utilize fetchmail or/and procmail, and external programs on receiving (like inc or imget).

Sylpheed-Claws is the so-called bleeding edge branch of Sylpheed which adds many more features over the main Sylpheed branch.

If you are upgrading from the old version of Sylpheed, please check the README file and scripts contained in /usr/freeware/share/sylpheed/tools for hints of converting old style filters and newscache's, etc.
