OK people, if we are gonna have Evolution as an option; then we really should have Kontact as an option instead of KMail. The email functionality of Evolution is not comparable to KMail. They are not even in the same class.

Kontact beats Evolution, hands down!

I voted IMP, just because I like webmail... since I can get at it from anywhere... My second choice is Evloution, I think it's really well laid out and has a clean but powerful interface.
I would like to point out, however, that I prefer GMail. I don't know if it could really be included on the list since it's neither open-source nor publicly available(and it's an entire email solution rather than just a client), but, hands-down, it kicks a** over anything else I've used despite only being in the beta stage.

Thunderbird is the perfect replacement for Outlook Express. Thunderbird has one of the best and most needed feature...and that is......

Thunderbird supports IMAP filters - a feature I didnt find in any other mail a user just sets a filter on his local machine and his mails get arranged automatically on the IMAP mail server...isnt that great ??

Thunderbird is the winner for me!

I have been using Squirrel Mail for the past couple of months and so I voted for it. But I am a supporter of the Mozilla foundation and their work so I naturally like Thunderbird

I just want to read mail. Kmail suits this purpose but with the Kontact it's overkill so I turn that off.
