Guide Review - XFMail 1.5.4 - Free Email Program
XFMail supports multiple POP, IMAP and local accounts, offers flexible filters and search, supports MIME (though it can't handle HTML inline) and international languages. It's great to see XFMail integrates with GnuPG for secure messaging, too.
Unfortunately, XFMail does not support OpenPGP messages, though, and XFMail feels a bit out of date in other areas, too. The message editor is not particularly comfortable, the address book is very simple (XFMail offers LDAP support, though), and the interface is a tad complicated and looks outdated.
