An email client.
POP3, APOP, IMAP4rev1, mh, SMTP, SMTP AUTH, NNTP, SSL/TLS, OpenPGP, external editors, filtering, muliple identities. Good multilanguage and character set support.
Sylpheed is bafflingly bad in places, and Claws Mail was a welcome improvement. This relationship reminds me a lot of PCManFM versus PCManFM-mod (which later became SpaceFM).

mbox message importing is per-file, so I can't import all of Thunderbird's email. It doesn't seem to do anything at all when I try to use it.
Earlier versions ∞
Had really horrific issues with the message editor.
