I concur. But since it's not listed then I have to go with thunderbird. It's the only client I ever, albeit rarely, use outside of the gmail web app.

Surely GMail is a service, not a client?

mailx

Am I the last guy using good old mailx?
I've been using it since '84. If I have to, I'll s a message and open it with Seamonkey or metamail or munpack. But more often, I want to v ($EDITOR=vim) it to see the headers or save one paragraph or something. Wish it used readline the way bash does, but not enough to hack it myself.

Interesting to see others using Alpine on CLI and Claws on GUI!

Although I increasingly find myself using Alpine on CLI and then just using Modest (bad quoting though!) and the iPod Touch mail clients and not bothering with a computer except for long e-mails.

Thunderbird 3.0 has come a LONG way and is greatly improved so it got my vote.

Overall, I think KMail is the best e-mail client, but its developers refuse to bring it into the 'modern age' and provide proper support for HTML mail.

I prefer plain text, but since 90%, if not more, of the e-mail I receive each day is HTML, I switched to Thunderbird.

If KMail ever gets dragged into the 21st Century I go back to it in a flash.

Evolution

I use Evolution have for many a year. Most bussiness get lost with out a calendering function Ive used Kmail its ok They both mesh with with Outlook users. But Evolution is tops for those needing a outlook or business style mail program

Im not sure that Kmail and Evolution should be in the same boat as Tbird and others. Tbird rules if you just need a pop client And no lighting is not there yet.
When it is ready.Those Outlook users really will have a solid alternative to use on any OS

I am curious why you prefer Alpine over Mutt?

Can't vote on this one. Other than having to use the dog slow and pathetic LookOut 2007 at work, I'm 100% webmail these days.
