Kiwi, a new IMAP mail client is coming

Posted in: Software

Just found out through my trusted RSS reader, which is subscribed to the Hawk Wings blog amongst others, that there is a new email client on the horizon.

It’s called Kiwi and it’s going to be a full blown IMAP mail client from the ground up and not as an afterthought for most mail clients that started life as a POP3 mail client. There is nothing to download yet but the outlook is promising. The lead developer looks like he knows what he is talking about if you read of his latest blog entry on the IMAP protocol. I hope it’ll work well with the Courier IMAP server I use in my setup. I’m guessing we’ll have to wait and see when the first public beta arrives. I know I’m going to give it a try…

A short personal note, the baby stuff is taking more time than anticipated in me preparing for it’s arrival. I thought that I would have less time when it had arrived but it is already happening. Please note that I’m still working on the installation procedures for the v2 version but the MySQL issues as discussed earlier are taking a lot of time to solve as the static/shared libraries are used by all the programs involved.
