Mail Client of the Year
How do you read the LQ Community Bulletin?


GamerX 12-31-2007 04:47 PM

Honestly I don't mean to troll but I think plain old webmail would be a strong candidate.

jeremy 12-31-2007 04:57 PM

"plain old webmail" isn't a specific application though, and two Open Source webmail implementations are on the list.


GamerX 12-31-2007 05:18 PM

Hmm true. This is still not specific but how about "The Web Browser" since this is about applications for gaining access to mail messages. Not sure how many people I speak for here but over the past year I don't recall ever using a conventional mail client to check my email even once.

In that case you probably want to skip voting in this particular poll.

Claws for me.

I just get on the web & go to yahoo or gmail.

yoyoned 01-03-2008 07:45 PM

I know it isn't really an app, but I prefer in to anything else listed.

Evolution evolves
Apart from concern about NovellSoft, Evolution does everything. It can poll Gmail and others so I only need to open it up and go. Remembers who my friends are and how to find them, too.:)

This year was the first time I tried KMail (instead of Thunderbird) and liked it a lot. Great integration with the desktop and other PIM applications like KOrganizer calendar.

Well, I do not know about forever, but it is a very solid Email client and it works well for me. Seamonkey works well, too. If I used another Email client, given the environment I am using now, it would probably be KMail as part of the Kontact PIM.

In the past on UNIX systems, I loved to use MH, either with the exmh GUI, with MH commands, with mh-e or gnus inside of Emacs, with mutt as a command line client, or just by accessing the Mail directories with ls to locate the messages and more to read them. Given a GUI world today, Thunderbird has been stable, available on all the platforms I use, and suitable to anything I have needed.

mutt ... just love those shaggy old dogs :}

KMail is fast, light, well-integrated, can poll POP3/IMAP (I've used both), and embeds in Kontact for quick callendar/email-about-it :).
