Pooka is an email client written in Java, using the Javamail API.
Pooka is an email client written in Java, using the Javamail API. It supports email through the IMAP (connected and disconnected) and POP3 protocols. Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.

Pooka is in beta release but is very stable and has plenty of features.

There are two different builds of Pooka available: the 1.0 versions which are for JDK 1.2.x and 1.3.x and the 1.1 versions which are for JDK 1.4.x. The 1.0 releases are pretty much only going to get bugfixes from now on; all new features (such as, when I find time for it, PGP support and spam filters) are going to go into the JDK 1.4 version.

Main features:

  • IMAP (connected and disconnected, including running IMAP over SSL)
  • POP3
  • SMTP
  • mbox (not recommended)
  • Desktop (Eudora-like)
  • Preview (Outlook-like)
