I tried to install the latest version, and I just can't get it to work. I had version .6 (as mentioned above) but I uninstalled it using yast2. I downloaded the tr.gz file from the website. After unzipping it, i try ./configure and it tells me that it can't find a new version of glib. I looked around and I do have an appropriate version. Can anyon help me figure this out?

I assume you are using SuSE since you mentioned Yast. When i used SuSE it was IMPOSSIBLE for me to compile anything from source because SuSE puts various libraries and config files into non-standard places as far as i know and ./configure script can not find them. Your best bet in ,my oppinion is to try to find a sylpheed RPM and install that...
Hope that helps

Yup sure does. It worked fine with the RPM. Crazy. Thanks for the suggestion.

No problem. I found the solution after reading the Sylpheed Mailing List very very carefully.

The thing is you have to remove the "config.cache" file if GPG support doesn't work...

Yep, I use it. I had to use Pegasus Mail at Uni and I got used to its interface (I don't like Outlook style interfaces). Sylpheed is very similar, works incredibly well (IMO) and seems to be nice and stable. I'm currently on 0.7.8 but I'm now d/ling the latest. Fingers crossed.
