KMail, its the most mature feature-wise, and integrates perfectly with the KDE suite of apps.

Thunderbird, Kmail was too much like Outlook, and I got tired of it. Thunderbird "just works(tm)"

I can't use Evolution because it doesn't support Thai encoding. What are the developers thinking? It has been included and dropped twice now... I use Thunderbird because the filters are faster than in Evolution AND I can read the odd mail in Thai that I get twice a week, even though the interface is rock-slow.

Kmail, because it's nice and it's a KDE app

I have experienced annoying bugs/quirks and a slow response from Evolution, otherwise I would vote it a real power app. I am still wondering why they did away with the summary screen from the 1.x series.
So I voted Thunderbird. It works. Some of the extensions extend the options immensely, and the layout and response is brilliant.

Sylpheed rocks! If you haven't tried it, give it a try. The first thing you'll notice it's really fast.

I voted Kmail because Novell fudged up Evolution in recent months. Six months ago I'd have voted for Evolution.
