e-mail program


Im need a e-mail retreiving/sending program, such as Kmail, cuz im too lazy to mess with fetchmail and sendmail and i dont see their use since im the only user on my machine.
So can someone please reccomend me a good e-mail program (other than Kmail).

Thanks in advance

evolution's good - it's damn near impossible to compile tho. i finally got it to go after a few weeks messing around with it. go with the binary images.

another good email prog, which i still kinda waveringly prefer over evolution, is balsa.

Thanks again!

there's also one called sylpheed, although I'm happy with Kmail, so I've never tried it.

Yeah, I have to agree here, it is a charm to get if you've optted to ximian desktop, but if you don't like a monkey on your dsktop, then I'd strongly suggest to get binaries, and compile it yourself.

Email Program

I'm happy with Kmail but just tried my old Pegasus V-4 running with Codeweavers wine and it seems to look like a useable program. Think it runs faster this way than it did before in windoze. Maybe i'll switch if it works out.
Dual booting W-me & Suse 7.3.
