Mac OS X Mail Clients for Every User
Paul Hoffman, VPN Consortium

Track: Mac OS X in the Large
Date: Tuesday, October 01
Time: 11:30am - 12:15pm
Location: Bayshore

Nearly every Mac user relies on email for their day-to-day communications. Mac OS X comes with its own mail client (uncreatively called "Mail"), but there are dozens of other mail programs that are tailored to everyone from the ubergeek to the rank novice.

Some mail programs only run on Mac OS X, and some are only available to Mac OS X users who also install an XWindows package. Oddly, two still-popular mail programs use character interfaces (remember them?) running in the Terminal.

Paul Hoffman covers mail features such as security, filtering for better organization, spam prevention, and address management, and talks about which Mac OS X clients have each of the features (and how well they implement them). He also briefly discusses the alphabet soup of mail protocols and talks about the kinds of changes we can expect in email in the next few years.
