Hello guys!

I have to say that last time I tried balsa was many years ago..but this weekend i give it a try,
and my feelings was better than expected.

Balsa looks more responsive and fast than many other mail clients, the code looks clean and
it supports GPG and IMAP.

After some testing (yeah, i care about usability) I noticed some GTK issues, some locking
problems and other things I would like to change or fix.

Thank you for positive feedback!

While reading the source I noticed that libbalsa is not compiled as a separate module which is bad for me, because i was wanting to make the Vala bindings for it, or write commandline utilities to handle the mailboxes or send email using the balsa framework.

I am not sure what you mean by separate module. libbalsa.a library is built - and for example linked to a separate address book binary src/balsa-ab.

I would like to say that the website does not reflect the real status of the project and it would be great to update the image of the program to sync with latest GNOME tips.

Suggestions and patches etc will be very much appreciated!

What's the current state of the project? How many people is involved? How can I contribute?

balsa has reached some relative maturity - the primary developes have scratched their itches :). However, all ideas/patches are welcome, I am sure there are many things that balsa can do smarter. balsa-list is a great place for communication and patch submission!

Thanks again,
