Claws. Been using it for a while and I can't understand why I didn't do this switch earlier.

Gmail for me

I've used KMail, Evolution, and SquirrelMail, and Gmail beats all hands-down.

I love to write pretty, highly decorative e-mail with lots of smileys and gifs and pictures thrown in throughout. I want it to be so striking that people just want to print my letters, frame them, and hang them on the wall!

And I don't want to be sent to an external editor to do it. Only Thunderbird lets me compose e-mail with the full range of formatting tools. And it's kid-friendly!

So you want hackers who use text clients to kill you?

Poor choice of words.

Better than 90% of the e-mail I receive daily, both corporate and personal, is in the HTML format and for just that reason I finally and reluctantly switched from KMail to Thunderbird 3.xx.

Not being able to use HTML would be like telling people they can only take black & white photos,
when we live in a world full of color. Perhaps the squints should be working on a way to secure HTML e-mail rather than complain about it? Maybe they are,
but all I seem to hear is why we shouldn't be using HTML mail, not how to make it secure.

Evolution beats KMail. Interesting. Apparently the KDE4 train wreck has driven many KDE users in search of alternatives.
