Hi everybody,

I am planning to switch to either Claws Mail or Sylpheed (I am still 
using Thunderbird), and I need some information about the two.

I already know that Claws Mail was originally a fork from Sylpheed, and 
that Claws Mail is now actively developed by an independent team.

 From what I have seen, the development of Claws Mail, today, is much 
more active than the development of Sypheed. It would seem that Claws 
Mail offers much more than Sylpheed (in terms of features, plugins, 
etc). Is my understanding correct?

I was going to finally decide in favour of Claws Mail, but just to be 
fair, I would like to know: is there any reason or special case in which 
one might prefer Sylpheed over Claws Mail?
