Honestly I don't mean to troll but I think plain old webmail would be a strong candidate.

"plain old webmail" isn't a specific application though, and two Open Source webmail implementations are on the list.

Hmm true. This is still not specific but how about "The Web Browser" since this is about applications for gaining access to mail messages. Not sure how many people I speak for here but over the past year I don't recall ever using a conventional mail client to check my email even once.

In that case you probably want to skip voting in this particular poll.

Gmail

I know it isn't really an app, but I prefer in to anything else listed.

Evolution evolves

Apart from concern about NovellSoft, Evolution does everything. It can poll Gmail and others so I only need to open it up and go. Remembers who my friends are and how to find them, too.

This year was the first time I tried KMail (instead of Thunderbird) and liked it a lot. Great integration with the desktop and other PIM applications like KOrganizer calendar.

In the past on UNIX systems, I loved to use MH, either with the exmh GUI, with MH commands, with mh-e or gnus inside of Emacs, with mutt as a command line client, or just by accessing the Mail directories with ls to locate the messages and more to read them. Given a GUI world today, Thunderbird has been stable, available on all the platforms I use, and suitable to anything I have needed.

KMail is fast, light, well-integrated, can poll POP3/IMAP (I've used both), and embeds in Kontact for quick callendar/email-about-it .
