I've used Mizilla mail for as long as I can remember, however nowadays I use Thunderbird, since settings migration between Netscape, Mozilla 1.x and Thunderbird is a no brainer... I tried using kontact and Evolution, and while they both are pretty good groupware programs, I don't have a real need for them.
I voted for Thunderbird, I use it. I actually think evolution is a much more complete application since it included calendaring and task management. However, I had so many problems with Evolution that I gave up on it. It kept hanging when talking to Exchange. In addition, Evolution doesn't run on Windows, so I have to run Thunderbird when I am on XP anyways.
I voted Thunderbird, though I use Evolution - too lazy to switch back. But what they all seem to lack is integrated notification, unlike the Windows versions. I am using Mail Notification with KDE, but it is unreliable. With GNOME I had GNUBiff, which was better, must try compiling it for KDE.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy / BackTrack 5/ Linux Mint 17
Thunderbird is the only open source program I installed and started running as a beginner that never gave me any trouble and has never failed me. When I was new to Linux, quite a few programs were a challenge for one reason or another to get going, a learning curve I guess. Not Thunderbird, I love this app!
