CapeSoft FeMail is not only a fully featured Email client, but it is also available as source code to allow you to easily add a full mail client to your application, and fully control the data stored by the mail client using the backend of your choice.

The Screenshots section shows some of the window and features that feMail provides and serves as a good introduction to feMail.

feMail is currently Beta - which means that is it is an initial release and doesn't have every single feature, bell, and whistle that it will end up with. It means that in the initial release form this documentation is not complete, new documentation for both users and programmers will be released each version.
