at least If you look at the list I linked to it looks like not many mail
clients support MFT. Of course the large and well known clients in the
Free Software community (mutt and gnus) can handle MFT. :-)

But it seems like more and more people use clients like Evolution,
Kmail, Claws, web mailer,... And that's where the "problem" starts.

best wishes,
