I voted for Evolution (running 2.2.2) as it was easy for me to setup and used. Evolution also allowed me to leave my e-mails on my ISP's mail server. I like this feature as I can use my laptops to access my e-mail but allow my desktop to download my mail off the server to keep all my e-mails centrally located.

Admittedly, I haven't tried any other OS e-mail programs.

Had to go with Kmail. It made some *Great* improvements in the last release and fixed a lot of bugs. Evolution used to be the way to go but they dumped the summary screen so I dumped Evolution. Actually, Evolution seems to be "Devoluting" lately. No thanks. I use and recommend Thunderbird in Windows environments but I just can't warm up to it compared to Kmail. I do use all of the PIM features and so do not want just an email app.

I simply dispise webmail. Sure I have two gmail accounts and use them regularly... I guess I don't like the whole idea of all my e-mail being kept at a remote server of which I have no control over, so I'd rather download all my e-mail to my computer using either POP or IMAP...

Looks like I'll have to try Thunderbird and Kmail. I haven't used either of those. Good thread.

I love evolutions Exchange plugin but, it has a tendency to bomb out. For personal use, I like yahoo. I am not a big e-mailer so I do not need a lot. I like the easy to use, available everywhere interface.Yet, I am still old school and when I am at the cli its always pine.
