GNUMail (aka GNUMail.app) is a free and open source, cross-platform mail client for GNUstep and Cocoa. It is the official mail client of GNUstep and is also used in Étoilé. It was inspired by NeXTMail (NeXT's Mail.app), the predecessor of Apple Mail. GNUMail is based on the mail handling framework Pantomime.
Furthermore GNUMail demonstrates that it is possible to develop cross platform programs for GNUstep and Cocoa.
