spruce - a GTK+ Internet mail client for X11.
Spruce is an X11 mail user agent (commonly known as an email client) written with the Gtk+ widget set. It is geared towards being extremely small and fast, supporting all the common features that users want or need without sacrificing usability or functionality. Spruce's basic feature set includes:
Spruce supports MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions), an Internet Standard for representing multipart and multimedia data in email. Spruce allows you to save MIME objects to files. Spruce's message composer does not currently have integral multimedia capability, but any type of data file (including multimedia) can be attached to a text message and sent using MIME's encoding rules. This allows any group of individuals with MIME-capable mail software (e.g. Spruce, CSCMail, Mutt, Pine, or many other programs) to exchange formatted documents, spreadsheets, image files, etc, via Internet email.
At the present time, spruce uses it's own SMTP interface to send mail. Future versions may support the ability to have an external program like Sendmail send messages as an alternative.
Spruce currently supports several different methods of mail retrieval. Currently supported are: POP (POP3, APOP, and POP with CRAM-MD5 Authentication), IMAP (also supports CRAM-MD5 Authentication) and mbox (mbox is the standard UNIX mail format. These mailboxes are commonly found in /var/spool/mail and/or in the user's home directory: ~/mbox).
The command line options/arguments are:
Any combination of these options will cause spruce to automatically open a new compose window on startup.
There are several levels of Spruce configuration. Configuration values at a given level over-ride corresponding values at lower levels. In order of increasing precedence:
~/.spruce/spruce.conf configuration file
~/.spruce/addrbook addressbook file
~/.spruce/*.mbx spruce specific mailboxes
~/.spruce/*.idx spruce's index files
~/.spruce/uid.list list of downloaded messages
which prevents spruce from
redownloading the same email
~/.spruce/sprucesig random signature file (takes
precedence over the global
random signature file)
/etc/sprucesig global random signature file
