Looks good - seems to be easy and well stuffed. Layout is somehow aged. May be a relaunch might help.ago

Sylpheed is very good, for what it does, but with one very important caveat. Sylpheed stores all your passwords in plain text.
As to why the authors choose not to use encryption is beyond me. Encrypting user credentials is essential. It should never be optional. FileZilla is another example of an extremely popular program that leaves users exposed in precisely the same way. Tsk!
