Mahogany is an OpenSource cross-platform mail and news client. It's available for UNix and Winows, supporting many protocols for mailing, and cryptology support(MIME) and SSL.

Mahogany is being developed by a team of volunteers (and we are always looking for more help from the community) and we are naturally using the free libraries and tools: we use the free cross-platform wxWidgets C++ application framework for the GUI part (its wxGTK port uses yet another free library GTK+) and the free c-client library developed at the University of Washington for mail folder access. Finally, SSL support is implemented using OpenSSL.

The Mahogany project is graciously hosted at SourceForge.
