Trojitá[2] is a free software IMAP and SMTP email client[3] developed using the Qt C++ library. The design goals of the maintainers are to develop a fast e-mail client which respects open standards, is cross-platform and uses the available resources very efficiently.[4][5]

Trojitá offers to manage contacts in the abook format, as introduced by the text-based user interface abook addressbook program.[6]

In Autumn 2012, Trojitá became a part of the KDE community.[7]


In 2006, the project started as a private exercise in programming[8] of Jan Kundrát. As a part of his studies, Trojitá became a topic of the author's bachelor[9] and master's[10] theses, making a debut in 2009.[11] In 2010, Jan was briefly contracted to work on Trojitá for a system integrator, but the project was cancelled for external reasons.[12] After Jan's graduation, the governance of the project opened up and Trojitá moved beneath the KDE umbrella.[13] As a part of the KDE community, Trojitá gained new contributors and was translated into thirty-three languages.[14]

Since 2012, Trojitá took part in two rounds each of Google Code-In[15][16] as well as Google Summer of Code[17][18][19] competitions. As of 2016, Trojitá includes contributions from more than sixty developers.[20]

Trojitá is the e-mail engine used for mail synchronization within the xTuple's Postbooks ERP project.[21] It was also planned to become the e-mail engine used in the Canonical's Ubuntu Touch mobile handsets[22][23] until Canonical forked the code.[24]
