Dear all,

"modest" is an experimental little email client with gtk (desktop) 
and maemo frontends, and it uses tinymail (www.tinymail.org) as its 

After being vaporware and inactive for quite some time, in the last 
months we have started working on it again. And now we make it available

for developers as open-source software (the license is BSD'ish,
please check the sources for details).
modest is far from finished -- we have written a lot of the Lego 
bricks, but there is a lot of work left finishing them and glueing 
them together. Many things don't work, and we're only at the start 
of turning this into a usable e-mail client. "Release early, release 
often", and bear with us while we turn this into something 

Check the webpage: http://modest.garage.maemo.org which has all the 
information and SVN-links. Of course, we're very interested in
your comments, suggestions and... contributions.

Best wishes,

PS: if you want to chat about this, you can catch me at the FOSDEM 
conference in Brussels, this weekend.
