I'd most likely make (very infrequent) builds of FossaMail for my own use, based on what is there now, with critical sec updates. The client works for my use, and isn't as exposed to sec issues as a browser would be (because no javascript).

Hopefully you share your infrequent builds with others too. I just moved to Fossamail and nevertheless I'm not planning to move forward.

If someone takes it (FM) over in one-two years it's enough.

Cheers !

Nylas Mail has been released: Nylas Mail

I have seen some good reviews about the Linux-version, so i have been waiting for the Windows-version.
But, it was a BIG dissapointment !

Conclusion: Nylas Mail is no real alternative to FossaMail.

I've not yet tried it, but I've been keeping an eye on the development of mailpile. Still in beta, but may be of some interest:
