www.mutt.org

It's smallest, fastest, cleanest, works from the console and does indeed support IMAP.

I'll be the first to admit I haven't used many of these email programs but I like Kmail for a really simple clean, easy to use client and Xamian Evolution for a full blown Outlook clone with contacts and date book, etc.

Sylpheed. Lightweight, fast and so very easy to use. Also supports news.

I must go with Tymox at this point, sylpheed is the best, hands down for a gui client. I prefer mutt in the CLI, but I run few machines these days w/o X.
