Welcome to the FossaMail homepage!
Latest news: We now have a Linux
version available too! Since this is a first public release for this
operating system, there may be some uncaught issues with it, so please
use the forum to report any issues with this particular version of the communication client on Linux.
FossaMail is an Open Source, Mozilla Thunderbird-based mail, news and
chat client for Windows and Linux, brought to you by the Pale Moon
developers (and therefore not affiliated with the Mozilla Corporation).
It is an alternative version of the Mozilla Thunderbird
mail&news client, and based on the Pale Moon browser core.
- Is built from source with compiler optimizations geared towards
an as stable and smooth operation of the client as possible (Pale Moon-alike optimizations).
the Pale Moon browser core as its back-end. The client is therefore
based on Pale Moon rather than other Mozilla-powered products.
- Uses its own profile folder on your system. This means it will
not interfere with existing Thunderbird installations.
The default profile location is %APPDATA%\FossaMail
- Should be compatible with all Thunderbird (v24/25b era) add-ons and plugins.
- Is available in 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions for both Windows and Linux.
with an optional calendar/organizer add-on (Lightning, available from the download location below) that will allow
it to be used in a Microsoft Outlook style information manager fashion.
- Operating system either:
- Windows Vista or above (Windows XP is not supported), OR
- A recent Linux distribution (it will not run on particularly old kernel/libc combinations)
- A processor with SSE2 support
- Sufficient hard drive space to install and store your e-mail and
- An internet connection ;-)
Current version: 25.1.1
Both the program (32-bit and 64-bit) and the lightning add-on are available from FOSSHub:
