Claws Mail 3.10.0 Unleashed!!!

26th May 2014 Claws Mail 3.10.0


Claws Mail is a GTK+ based, user-friendly, lightweight, and fast
email client.

New in this release:

* Complete SSL certificate chains are now saved, and if built with
Libetpan 1.4.1, the IMAP SSL connection's certificate chain is made
available. Both of these allow correct certificate verification
instead of a bogus 'No certificate issuer found' status.

* Auto-configuration of account email servers, based on SRV records,
is now possible. (GLib >= 2.22 is required.)

* Added a preference to avoid automatically drafting emails that are
to be sent encrypted, (Configuration/Preferences/Compose/Writing).

* Messages saved as Drafts are now saved as New, highlighting the
Drafts folder, in order to draw the attention to unfinished mails

* It is now possible to add a 'Replace signature' button to the
Compose window toolbar.

* Quotation wrapping and undo/redo in the Compose window has been

* 'Reply to all' now excludes your own address.

* The 'Generate X-Mailer header' option has been renamed 'Add user
agent header' and applies to both X-Mailer and X-Newsreader

* Added hidden preferences, 'address_search_wildcard' and
'folder_search_wildcard', to choose between matching from start of
the folder name/address or any part of the name. (Activating these
options restores the previous behaviour.)

* Added hidden preference 'enable_avatars' to control the internal
capture/render process, and which allows disabling it by external
plugins for example.

* 'Check for new folders' now only updates the folder list, not
updating the contents of folders. If needed, it can be followed by
'Check for new messages'

* When using Redirect, the redirecting account's address is used in
the SMTP MAIL FROM instead of the original sender's address.

* NEW: Libravatar plugin, which displays avatars from

* Added support for an arbitrary number and sources of 'avatars' and
images for email senders, and migrated Face and X-Face headers.

* Avatars are now included when printing mails.

* The GPG keyring can now be used as the source for address auto-

* The vCalendar and RSSyl plugins now have an option to disable SSL
certificate verification (and check them by default).

* The ClamAV plugin now pops up an error message only once instead of

* Updated the man page and the manual.

* Updated Brazilian Portuguese, British English, Czech, Dutch,
Finnish, French, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Lithuanian, Slovak,
Spanish, and Swedish translations.

* Added Esperanto translation.
