Current Version: 1.2d7k

A popular, powerful, and free IMAP email client from Carl Bell, the author of LDapper, above. Version 1.2d7k fixes a bug that kept the preferences from being opened under Mac OS 9.

User Reviews

"As far as I can tell, it is the only Mac IMAP client that fully supports the MIME enclosure standard, which makes it a leader for many people who don't want/can't use POP clients. It has a simple-to-use interface and does the job quickly and effectively. A great down-and-dirty email program."
—Scott Leslie

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

Of Note . . .

No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
