Simple Mail [v2.90]

Welcome to the Simple Mail Home Page!

Simple Mail is a mail client for Firefox. It allows you to get notified, read and write messages for multiple email accounts inside Firefox.


Usage: Configure one or more accounts in Preferences, set account refresh time and get notified of new mail. When new mail arrives, Simple Mail shows new messages count in status bar. You can click Simple Mail icon to open received messages in a separate browser tab. Also Simple Mail has a toolbar button, which you can put on toolbar to access SM easily.

Features:
  • Accounts
    • Multiple email accounts
    • POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols
    • Automatic checking on specified timeout
  • Address Book
    • Autocomplete box suggests recipient names/addresses as you start typing them
    • Groups of contacts
    • Display Address book in main Simple Mail window

  • Move messages of different accounts into different folders
  • Turn on "Download headers only" mode and create a filter to fully download messages only from contacts in your address book
  • Mark important messages with red color
  • Play different sounds for messages from different senders
