Sylpheed is good, I use it on my sister's PC.

I will keep using mozilla or thunderbird in this PC because it use the Netscape 4.X format which would keep compatibility.

I tried Kmail, Mozilla mail, Opera's mail/news built into their browser, and Sylpheed. Evolution outperforms all of them in terms of features and ease of use. I also enjoy seeing my weather on the log in screen.

I remember PINE from around the time the internet opened to the public, and it was my very favorite news/mail reader back then, and even text editor! I also used Lynx back then as well. My how times have changed! PINE is still great too. But I use KDE and enjoy the GUI stuff these days.

For me, evolution would be the best ...
if I could spare 300++ MB harddisk space just to install GNOME LIBS !!

So yeah ... I better stick with pine on the server,
remotelly accessed from anywhere using ssh (Linux) or PuTTY (Windows).

The only "VIRUS proof" method to read e-mail from Windows

Emacs / Gnus is still missing on the list. Certainly the most powerful news / mail client around...
