I used Sylpheed to read email because

  • it is to the point
  • it is light
  • you get the number of unread messages in each folder (interesting with IMAP and procmail)
  • it supports X-Face
  • it is easy to add new local accounts

So, far not many tips & tricks…

A nice fork of Sylpheed is Claws Mail which has more features.


I got some problems with an imap-courier server (on Debian woody and then sarge):

Sylpheed connects to the server, but I don't get my emails.

I first get the previous list in the INBOX, all other folders are empty and then I can't get anything anymore. It goes away like it comes…
