Modest is a graphical e-mail program, targetting resource-constrained
environments, such as older PCs and internet tablets. It aims to be
easy to use and provide a complete e-mail experience, while keeping
the resource usage at a modest level (by 2007 standards).
To actually start with the UI, you have to provide the 'showui' parameter to
modest. Reason for this not being the default is to allow for DBUS-activation
of various services without showing the UI.
The MODEST_DEBUG environment may contain any number of ':'-separated strings
to trigger certain debugging features:
Abort the program when any Gtk/Glib warning or error occurs. This can be
useful when running inside a debugger.
Run various pieces of debug-only code in modest
Log actions to the log file (not available yet)
Debug GObject usage (G_TYPE_DEBUG_OBJECTS)
Debug GSignal usage (G_TYPE_DEBUG_SIGNALS)
Return all the user-settings to the 'factory defaults'
Normally, modest will exit with 0 as its exit code. In case of any error,
the exit code will be non-zero.
