It's extremely simple: Sending doesn't work, if you don't set up preferences correctly (I mean smtp server name, user name, password to connect to a server and send your letter). I understand why the author didn't answer: It was a lame question, please read the README if you want to use a program.
I think Sylpheed is the best and you bet I'm right, because I tried over 15 mail client before. Congratulations to Yamamoto, well done!

You're very right! Application directory is not what
I'd like most, it's not clear how to handle dependecies and shared components. M$ has a solution for this: applications put into /windows/system32 dir their own shared codes. Sounds terrible! Can't They recognize the difference between system progs and application progs?
So, my partial solution is change the /bin/install to new code, which store what, where and how did, and then uninstall will be easy.
