It is an email client focused on having a centralized software, ideal for work environments, since it can group both the sending and receiving of emails, managing your calendar, contacts, and tasks.
This development is a good alternative for proprietary applications such as Microsoft Outlook. And, although it is abandoned, the truth is that it is a project that has been active until recently, until August 2018, so it is not too outdated in terms of functions.
