Guide Review - WikMail 2005 - Email Program
In spite of its skinnable interface and maybe thanks to a database-centered approach, WikMail is a speedy tool. Unfortunately, it supports only POP accounts, and some areas haven't yet gotten appropriate attention.
There's plain text editing, for example, which doesn't encourage properly formatted emails, and the filters, which aren't particularly helpful, neither with sorting mail nor with getting rid of spam.
