Projects / TkRat


TkRat is a graphical Mail User Agent (MUA) which handles MIME. It is mainly written in C, but the user interface is done in Tcl/Tk. The program currently understands UNIX mailboxes, POP, IMAP, and mh folders. Messages are sent via SMTP or any user configured program (sendmail, for example). It has support for disconnected IMAP operations.

    Release Notes: TkRat now has the concept of offline and online modes. The folder and preferences windows have been completely redesigned and are now hopefully much easier to use (although a lot of work remains here). It now also supports IMAP/POP3 over SSH or SSL. Support for roles was added, so you can have different personalities, and Polish and Portuguese texts were also added.
