Re: deb-ppc: recommended browser and email client ?
Now in Japan, GTK+ based mail client called "sylpheed" develops
for whole Unix based systems by HIroyuki Yamamoto.
It opens as "alpha-version" now, but feels stable on normal use.
It looks like some Windoze mailers, menu based settings, feels
easy to use.
easy to set/use
MH format mail handring
Address book (XML based database)
gettext message system for internationalization
and so on.
It develops on Debian/x86, and works on Linux-x86/PPC,Solaris,
FreeBSD, with GTK+ libs.
Now Mr. Yamamoto updates and implements new features day by day.
