Pegasus Mail is an e-mail client that interacts directly with the user, allowing mail to be sent, read, filed, printed and otherwise manipulated through a graphical interface. Small and fast, it can be left running permanently on the workstation and includes powerful tools to notify the user when new mail arrives. It can run on single Windows computers, or local area networks - it has special support for Novell NetWare LANs that allow it to operate intuitively and with almost no maintenance. It also supports multiple users on a single computer. It can act as a complete internal mail system on its own without needing further servers or components: it can send and receive Internet mail on its own using standard protocols (SMTP, IMAP and POP3).
- Updated editor V4.62 also uses a heavily-updated version of the editor module we use, and has numerous changes in the way editing buffers are constructed, meaning it should now be able to edit and reply to much more complex HTML message formats than prev
- Open link in background You can now Ctrl+Click on any link in a message to open that link in your web browser without bringing the browser to the foreground. This allows you to open a succession of links then work with them when you're ready
- Signatures overhauled The way signatures are handled has been totally overhauled, and you should now find they work considerably better when you insert them at compose-time
- Faster POP3 downloads POP3 downloads should be significantly faster when you have chosen to leave mail on the POP3 server

dose not hold a candle to Thunderbird, love the windows 95 look!

I have tried a variety of other email clients. IMHO, there is nothing that beats the power, flexibility and reliablity of Pegasus. Some of the features that make it superior are perhaps not for the stubbornly non-geeky, but power has its price in the form of a (not daunting) learning curve. Once its merits are appreciated and exploited, Pegasus really stands out.

I loved Pmail, but please let it die a graceful death. 16-bit support? DOS? Win 95? Netware? David Harris was amazing. But unless he has come up with a 32/64-bit program that offers something better than Thunderbird (yes, I know TB is currently 32-bit), then let's remember pmail for the excellent program it was.

I don't actually use Pegasus Mail anymore but it's been a great free client for a long time now (since ~1990?). Pegasus Mail is very light, efficient and has tools that many other clients don't. It's made to read and organize email and it does an outstanding job. If you like Thunderbird or Outlook Express or Eudora or whatever then by all means use them but choice is a good thing. I'm glad that Google's Chrome, Opera and even IE (version 7+) exist even though I personally still prefer Firefox.

When we have a client like Thunderbird, why do we need this?
TB has a full calendar, ongoing development, and its based on the very solid mozilla engine.
