Claws Mail is an e-mail client (and news reader), based on GTK

Claws Mail (previously known as Sylpheed-Claws) project is an e-mail client (and news reader), based on GTK .

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.

The messages are managed in 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 and/or procmail, and external programs on receiving (like inc or imget).

Claws Mail is distributed under the GPL.
