Judging by the comments it sounds like Thunderbird might win it this year... hmm, I like T-bird, but I've never really thought it to be all that special.

There are faster & better clients out there IMHO.

What, telnet's not on the list?
If I used a mail client (webmail all the way, baby!), I'd probably use kmail/Kontact again.

I use KMail. I don't know whether it is the best, but it does my job pretty well.

Voted Evolution because that's my favorite, though I'm currently trying out KMail. So far, Evolution still rocks.

I think that there are some bug or difficulties
in Kmail when it must manage IMAP or many
accounts .
I am still happy with it.

Thunderbird is the runner-up i guess, but its kinda low on features. It still has a long way to go, but once i comes up, itll surpass evolution by miles!

for now ---> EVOLUTION!
