     3This page is for user comments about what they feel are the good points and bad points about Mulberry - good points come first! The overall story is that Mulberry is technically excellent, and fully featured, but the user interface could be simpler.

    55== Advantages == 
    66 
    77 * Excellent IMAP support 
     8   * ability to share mailboxes (most other IMAP clients can access shared mailboxes, but can't ''grant'' access to them) 
    89 * Handles large, high volume email accounts easily 
    9  * Inheritance allows easy creation of new identities 
    10  * Marks email read as soon as it's opened, regardless of how quickly it's read 
    11  * Allows signing multiple identities with the same certificate 
    12  * Simple enterprise deployment using IMSP 
     10 * Multiple identities with inheritance of attributes including address, signature, sent mail folder, server accounts, etc. 
     11   * associate identities with specific mailboxes 
     12 * Marks email read as soon as it's opened, or after a delay 
     13 * Allows signing multiple identities with the same security certificate 
     14 * Simple enterprise deployment using IMSP  
     15   * Support for IMSP address book server - access the same address book from any machine or from web mail. 
     16   * Support for IMSP preferences server - get the same preferences on any machine. 
     17   * Display preferences are stored for specific screen sizes. 
    1318 * Almost unlimited options allow excellent personalization 
    1419 * Inheritance-based configuration of folders, accounts, and identities 
     
    2227 * Full support for SSLv3 and STARTTLS for POP, IMAP and SMTP 
    2328  
    24  
    2529== Disadvantages == 
    2630 
    2731 * Doesn't render graphical attachments inline 
    28  * Single-threaded 
     32 * Single-threaded (so you can't get on with writing an email while Mulberry is checking for new mail). 
    2933 * Keystrokes not configurable 
    3034 * No localisation 
    3135 * Configuration in multiple places (eg. Preferences, Windows menus) is confusing 
    3236 * No IMAP IDLE 
    33  * The icons in the interface are too small and compared to other email clients (Thunderbird, Outlook etc) look dull. Certainly at our University, I'm sure it is one of the things that puts users off changing from other clients, even though Mulberry is a better client. 
     37 * Complex user interface. 
     38 * The excellent configuration tool that was available up to version 4.0.4 is not available for 4.0.5 or 4.0.6. The tool was great for customisation and enterprise deployment.
