The best Email client/server ever.

Here it is, Zoe.

The main website is

A little history about how I came to find/need this.  I have four personal domains that I maintain.  I made my life difficult by creatig multiple accounts with some of the domains and having them all forwarded to my main ISP email address.  That isn’t so bad, but I also maintain two webmail email addresses.  One of the webmail addresses is the destination for ALL emails forwarded to my ISP email address.  So, when you send me the 3.7 MB unrequested, stupid video to my ISP address, not only do I get a copy when I get home, it is automatically forwarded to my webmail address that has just 5 MB of space (2MB of which is permanently occupied).  Therefore I can’t receive any more mail there.  Every “important” email is blocked.  That means that I can’t get my daily Viagra/Penis-elarger emails.  I needed a solution that allowed me to read all of the email that is stored/forwarded to my main ISP account that is sitting on my machine at home.  I looked at many standalone IMAP servers and POP servers.  That required too much configuration for mentally-challenged me.  I stumbled onto Zoe during this search.

There is neat reading by the author,

There isn’t much documentation there, but it really isn’t needed.

If you have multiple email accounts with different domains, this is for you.  If you have your email “organized” with many different folders, this is for you.  If you have ever searched your email folders for a specific word or phrase, this is for you.  If you want to be able to read the email sitting on your home machine: Linux box, Mac box, or Windows box, this is for you.  Hooray for JAVA!

Excerpt from the main website.

The goal here is to do for email (starting with your personal mailbox)
what Google did for the web… The Google principle: It doesn’t matter
where information is because I can get to it with a keystroke.

Documentation from a user is here,

My Mac OS X hints are on the next page:

Download the compressed archive.
Untar, Unzip, or uncompress the archive.
Drop the folder into your “applications” directory.
Double click on the “ZOE.jar file.
Then follow the on-screen directions.  If it doesn’t open up your default browser, navigate to in your browser.

Click on “Accounts” and add your remote mailbox information for your first account, click save, return to the account you just made and click “Import”.

After you add each of your mail accounts, click “Import” to archive those specific emails currently stored on your computer.

As expected, the windows installation isn’t so straight-forward.  It still isn’t so hard.  The documentation is sparse by the author, but with a little searching, it can be found on other websites. It works great.

I’ll be more than happy to help you if you need help.  Just send me an email.
