Claws-Mail – Part V

I’ve been using Claws-mail for a couple of days now and I’m loving it more and more.
Some of the features I love:

  • The ability to process a folder based on rules. I set up a processing filter for example, for some of my folders to delete the emails after 60 days, but only if I haven’t set the thread to be watched. No way I could do this in Thunderbird. Sure it’s a bit of a setup in Claws, especially if you have a lot o ffolders but it sure is worth it.
  • Integration with SpamAssassin. It’s wasn’t an easy setup, mostly because of my lack of knowledge of SpamAssassin, but that had nothing to do with Claws-mail, the integration with Claws-mail is outstanding.
  • The speed.
  • The Next button. Read the next unread mail, covers all folders and all mailboxes.

Yes there are things that I miss but I’ll put in some requests for change with the developers and see what they think.

I’ll elaborate on the “problems” I ran into with SpamAssassin.
