Ok, thnx! It's really amazing that Sylpheed is still going strong in
these years where almost every piece of software gets nominated
for "The Most Bloated Software Of The Year".

I've never seen such nice piece of good-working and elegant software.
I'm a heavy IMAP/NNTP user and I have used Sylpheed for many years now.
I really can't remember when I first installed Sylpheed, must be more
than 15 years ago I think. Somewhere at 0.0.4 or so, there wasn't even
an IMAP option IIRC. And the only bug I ever reported was a "rebuild
IMAP folder tree erases all directory settings" or something like
that :-)

When did you start Sylpheed? Was that back in 1998 or so?

Kudos to Hiroyuki!
