I've only used claws a little bit on MSWindows, but I have used sylpheed,
which is the project claws is a fork of, extensively in the past. I'd probably
be using it now, if Google weren't being a bit backwards about the way
they handle TLS connections.

The way all the ecmascript in the webmail client is so heavy that it's hard
to type even this much of a message, I'm going to be figuring out the
problems again.

One of these days I'll get someone to pay me
to design a language that combines the best of Forth and C.
Then I'll be able to leap wide instruction sets with a single #ifdef,
run faster than a speeding infinite loop with a #define,
and stop all integer size bugs with my bare cast.

More of my delusions:
