Maybe Sylpheed? I've got a slightly older version currently installed and it is nice and fast. The only problem is that it doesn't like to copy into other apps (like Opera or Gaim). It just randomly quits. I'm thinking that either they fixed it in the latest version (.97 or something) or its something wrong with my install...elvis doesn't like to copy between seperate instances.

I'm not gonna use thunderbird for 3 reasons :
1. It's too bloated.
2. It always positions your cursor beneath the text you are going to
reply to.(Which is annoying)
3. It won't work in slackware

1. I'm running Mozilla, and while it's certainly full-featured, I don't consider it bloated. I guess that's a fine line.

2. Among the 'bloat' is a way of setting 'preferences', it's located under the edit button on the toolbar. If you go to 'Mail & Newsgroups' --> 'Composition', you can select:
a. start my reply above the quoted text.
b. start my reply below the quoted text.
c. select the quoted text.

3. I'm running Slackware 9.

Enjoy!

I'm a fan of Evolution. To me its not bloated but if you are going for just 'the basics' i guess it could be. The Evolution+pgp support+spamassassin combo works great for my needs.

I had this problem with gaim. It couldn't find the Glib libraries after I installed them too. I believe my problem was that Glib got installed somewhere other than one of the lib directories that ld.so.conf points to. Try adding it if it doesn't already exist (its in /etc). I also seem to remember something about PKG_CONFIG_PATH enviroment variable. I forget where its initialized though. And I did something with LD_LIBRARY_PATH as well. If I was on my linux box I could check real quick, but that's not for another 3 hours at least.

If you question isn't answered by the time I get home I'll look it up for you .

Oh, and after you update the ld.so.conf, you have to run ldconfig to update it. I think those two enviroment variables were in /etc/profile. Depending on what distro you have, that may be a different file, like bashrc or something. YAY! I'm getting the hang of this linux thing .
