Favorite app for email

I use Kontact/KMail. Nicely integrated with KDE and has all the options I need for a clean machine!

Email and the web are two places I really do like a GUI interface. I like Thunderbird and Firefox because they work on Linux and Window$. Evolution and KMail are nice. Evolution is a lot more than just mail and while I do like it I don't use it much yet as I just don't need "contacts, calendar, todo" at this time. Actually Thunderbird has a nice extension for "calendaring" which I have been using a little.

I have SquirlleMail set up on my web server and use it a lot when I'm away from my own systems. It gives me a way to keep in touch from almost any system without having to create accounts in Outlook or Outlook-Express etc. SM is just always there for me: Linux, MS Windows, Mac -- anywhere I can get to a browser, even lynx or links.

Sylpheed. It's a very underrated email client that everyone should at least try. It's lightweight, fast as hell, and it gets the job done.

Evolution rocks! The Virtual Folder feature is fantastic. I have a "Today's EMAIL", "Last 7 days from <...mailing list...>", and "Last month" Vfolders that help to keep me (relatively) sane.

I hope the Virtual Folder concept spreads to Thunderbird and KDEMAIL .... when / if it does I'll probably vote for Thunderbird next time (cuz it is cross platform).
