Is it worth to switch from Thunderbird to Claws?
Hi, I've been using Thunderbird for a lot, but I would like a lighter mail client.

I was checking Sylpheed but it lacks of HTML rendering for incoming messages, and that is a "must" for me.

Then I realized that Claws started as a parallel branch of Sylpheed but included those features Sylpheed doesn't have (one of them is the HTML rendering).

I would like to know if Claws is as light as Sylpheed to see if it's worth it to switch to Claws, because the reason to switch is to get a lighter mail client.

I really appreciate any suggestions about this.

It's free software. Install it, try it out, if you like it then keep it. It's not like you're making a big investment to get it.

edit: I personally don't have experience with Claws so that's as far as I can guide you.

Thanks for your reply sag47.

Yes, I'll surely install it as far as I get home.

I just wanted to "hear" opinions of those who have been using it for a while with lots of emails and contacts just to know if it keeps as light compared to Thunderbird.
