Were to vote for the single greatest advance in personal email of the past year, I'd have to go with gmail though. For the first time, webmail can actualy compete with MUA's.

Mozilla Mail

I prefer Mozilla Mail, but unfortunately it's not in the list.

KMail (inside Kontact) has always been my favorite. (mutt for command line)

I like how it's easy to integrate Mailing List filters, to add GPG support, to add a spamfilter and virus detection and other smaller features.

It could be improved in the ease-of-setting-up department (for new users) though. Not a problem once everything works properly.
