Currently I'm looking for an email client that allows to script dynamic filtering in any language. I know that mutt could be scripted, but I work a lot with html5 emails, and I don't like how mutt process them. I've already tried sylpheed, thunderbird - they just can't do what I need.

Do you have any suggestions?


By "work with html5" I mean to have possibility to display html5 using gui

  • what kind of filtering (or other scripting) do you need to do? thunderbird's got pretty good filtering capabilities built in (i mostly use mutt but TB is OK for the rare occasions when i must use a GUI mail client). – cas Aug 5 '17 at 2:24
  • @cas some powerful. For instance, I'd like to automatically create label for messages that match regex with extracting the label from it :-) As I remember, Thunderbird has not such scriptability power (without extensions, of course). But I will try it out, thanks – alexcleac Aug 8 '17 at 14:28
