Hiri: one of the best multiplatform email clients


Although hiri It is a defunct project at the moment, it is still in many repositories of the distros, and there are still a good handful of users who continue to use it. 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abandoned, the truth is that it is a project that has been active until recently, until August 2018, so it is not too outdated in terms of functions.

Also, Hiri is a multiplatform software, based on the Qt framework, and that can be run on both macOS and Windows, and also on Linux. Of course, it is open source, free, and uses the Microsoft Exchange Server infrastructure, so it can be a great option for those who need it. Of course, it does not support the IMAP protocol.

As for their most important features, what's more:

  • Synchronize using Microsoft EWS API (Exchange Web Server)
  • Compatible with Exchange 2010 SP2 + and Office 365
  • Complete calendar for your work and reminders.
  • Database for managing emails locally with SQLite, being able to easily locate emails.
  • Exchange Global Address List (GAL).
  • Integrated task manager, so you can have all your work in order and don't forget to do anything.
  • Folder manager to sort everything.
  • OAuth 2.0 authentication, for greater security.

So if you are teleworking and you are using these types of accounts, it is likely that Hiri can help you on a day-to-day basis with this project. In addition, you can find it in the app stores of your favorite distro, or download the snap package directly from the official website that I have included in the link. Therefore, you will not have problems to have it ready in a few simple clicks ...

    An abandoned project can hardly be one of the best currently no matter how multiplatform it may be. I feel ashamed of you for having the balls to recommend an abandoned project that means nothing more than a gazillion bugs to exploit by hackers. Bravo gentlemen great recommendation.
