GTK+ mail client

Sylpheed is a GTK+ based, lightweight, and fast email client. Almost all commands are accessible with the keyboard. Other features include multiple accounts, POP3/APOP support, thread display, and multipart MIME; a future goal is to be fully internationalized. The messages are managed in the MH format, so you'll be able to use it together with another mailer that uses the MH format.
