Trojitá, a fast Qt IMAP e-mail client
Our mission is to deliver an application which:
- Enables you to access your mail anytime, anywhere.
- Does not slow you down. If we can improve the productivity of an e-mail user, we better do.
- Respects open standards and facilitate modern technologies. We value the vendor-neutrality that IMAP
provides and are committed to be as interoperable as possible.
- Is efficient — be it at conserving the network bandwidth, keeping memory use at a reasonable level or not
hogging the system's CPU.
- Can be used on many platforms. One UI is not enough for everyone, but our IMAP core works fine on anything
from desktop computers to cell phones and big ERP systems.
- Plays well with the rest of the ecosystem. We don't like reinventing wheels, but when the existing wheels
quite don't fit the tracks, we're not afraid of making them work.
Please see the download page for details about how to obtain, compile and run trojita.
