A quick google turned up this:

Mulberry was a commercial email client marketed by Cyrusoft from approximately 1995 to 2005. As of October 1, 2005, Cyrusoft International, Inc./ISAMET, has declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy and gone out of business.

Mulberry is very much alive!  The extraordinarily talented developer of Mulberry, Cyrus Daboo,
acquired the rights to the program, and he has now made it available for free.   There is also an
active email forum to which Cyrus contributes frequently.  For more information:
http://www.mulberrymail.com/index.shtml

I tried a number of other email clients when Mulberry temporarily went belly up.  These trials
made me realize more than ever how terrific Mulberry is.  No other program I know handles IMAP
as well. :Thmbsup:

I wish the website had more about the app. Seems very geared toward those who already use it or have already decided to start, rather than enticing people to try it. I have no idea what its features or advantages are. The mention of a calendar built-in interested me, but if I can't see a feature list, screenshots, etc. I'm not really going to bother. I'm not an IMAP user either, so I don't know if it's really even worth considering. Anyone want to change my mind? :D

I tried it and after struggling to work out how to set up a single POP email account for 10 minutes finally managed to download some email. I found it all rather clunky and the interface looks like it dates back to Windows 3.1 or 95, not going to entice me from Outlook I'm afraid.

And now Cyrus is opening the source (under the Apache-2.0 license)!

I'm not an IMAP user either, so I don't know if it's really even worth considering.
It is, first and foremost, one of the best IMAP clients created.  If you don't use IMAP at all, it might not be the best choice (as it is really intended to work with email kept on an IMAP server).
