    Free Email clients on Linux Guests


    Hi folks

    One of the best I've seen where you can actually set up accounts manually (Thunderbird now makes that a real pain) is Kmail (from KDE plasma desktop).

    You can also have decent menus as well in the client

    do the following -->show hidden files and then in file: .config/kmail2rc

    in section "[Main Window]" delete the line "MenuBar=Disabled"
    - in section "[General]" delete the line "ShowMenuBar=false"

    Then "Alles in Ordnung". !!!!

    It's a decent email alternative to the others, allows multiple accounts and has a decent manual configuration -- - No probs with IMAP / POP3 setups.

    Inboxes etc look pretty much identical to OUTLOOK -- note one quirk though deleted mail is in the trash on local folder where you can then delete forever if like me you prefer to have deleted emails go to trash rather than being immediately deleted.

    Cheers
