Blag 140000is what is what you get when you download from their site its
based  on Fedora 14...17 is no longer supported,but i discovered Sylpheed in

That's too bad they are not supporting any more, but I will install the
other free versions as well, hopefully one or more of those are currently

*this is supported.. its 100% free of any proprietary sofware*:

yes i did...microsoft?anyhow if i sign up to sylpheed its not to use
i just like the simplicity of its use .
That is what I am after as well.   I had difficulty figuring out how to get
the plug-ins installed for Sylpheed running in windows and after a 20 min or
so, looked for and installed an alternative, Claws which is working so far.

well if you are trying them out in Vm box,you have more than an idea.its a
matter of choice some others might be able to help i'm a newcomer to all of
this myself.But its changed my approach and gnu+linux libre os are so much
more user friendly.

Good to know.   I am a newcomer too.  I like the GNU + Linux distros as
well.   The software seems to follow a more logical approach and is
predictable which I love.  With Windows, I struggled for years to figure out
the logic of it because I assumed it was there.  I never realized it was
intentionally designed to prevent users from gaining control over the
software.  I think that is really unforgiveable, they can never repay me for
the hundreds of hours of time wasted trying to figure out their bogus
system.   I do hate Microsoft for this along with the others (Apple, Adobe,
and the newest member of my scumbag list - Symantec).
