Pretty Good Email Client


aerc is an email client that runs in your terminal. It's highly efficient and extensible, perfect for the discerning hacker. Some of its more interesting features include:

 * Editing emails in an embedded terminal tmux-style, allowing you to check on
   incoming emails and reference other threads while you compose your replies
 * Render HTML emails with an interactive terminal web browser, highlight
   patches with diffs, and browse with an embedded less session
 * Vim-style keybindings and ex-command system, allowing for powerful
   automation at a single keystroke
 * First-class support for working with git & email
 * Open a new tab with a terminal emulator and a shell running for easy access
   to nearby git repos for parallel work
 * Support for multiple accounts, with IMAP, Maildir, Notmuch, Mbox and JMAP
   backends. Along with IMAP, JMAP, SMTP, and sendmail transfer protocols.
 * Asynchronous IMAP and JMAP support ensures the UI never gets locked up by
   a flaky network.
 * Efficient network usage - aerc only downloads the information which is
   necessary to present the UI, making for a snappy and bandwidth-efficient
 * Email threading (with and/or without IMAP server support).
 * PGP signing, encryption and verification using GNUpg.
 * 100% free and open source software!
