Easy to use e-mail client
Icedove is the rebranding of Mozilla Thunderbird by the Debian Project.
Icedove supports different mail accounts (POP, IMAP, Gmail), has an integrated learning Spam filter, and offers easy organization of mails with tagging and virtual folders. Also, more features can be added by installing extensions. The goal of Icedove is to produce a cross platform standalone mail application using the XUL user interface language.
Icedove has IRC support, and the calendar extension Mozilla Lightning is now installed by default.
DocumentationWhy not recommend Thunderbird? As explained in our Free Software Definition, all four freedoms must be available on both a commercial and non-commercial basis. Mozilla's trademark policy serves to limit Freedom 2 to gratis distribution only, making the software nonfree.
