I think the most popular is ximian Evolution
www.ximian.com

I think KMail might be popular as well, theres also pine.

I'm quite a fan of Mozilla Thunderbird. It is only at version 0.5 so it's not perfect yet, but I've not had any real problems with it.

Same here. Mozilla Thunderbird has been good to me so far.

Another vote for Thunderbird here, excellent spam filter and Evolution just seemed a bit like overkill for my needs.
