TkRat (Ratatosk)

TkRat is a powerful, but yet easy to use, graphical Mail User Agent.

Home Screenshots Downloads Mailing lists Bugs and "features"


Currently TkRat is available in a stable version and as snapshots of the development branch. The really brave can also try to download the code through anonymous CVS.

Stable version 2.1


Snapshots are taken of the development tree at times when new features are considered relatively stable. However this is hot off the development tree so there may very well be lots of bugs in it. I make no guarantees whatsoever regarding this code, but I am using it myself in a production environment.

Anonymous CVS

This is the way to get the cutting edge, absolutely latest, version. However I give even less guarantees for this version than for the snapshots. Personally I usually run this version, or one close behind it in my own production environment. But there are often bugs and strange features in this version.

To use anonymnous CVS you should have a fairly recent version of CVS. Tkrat.org uses 1.11 and only supports the "pserver" access method.

The first thing you have to do is login to the pserver. This can be done using the following command:

    # cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@tkrat.org:/cvsroot login
Just press return at the password prompt. Once you are logged in you can checkout the source tree by using the following command:
    # cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@tkrat.org:/cvsroot checkout -P ratatosk
Now you are in business...
