Thunderbird isn't on the list! I can't vote for any of the others as I don't use them.

Edit - thanks for putting it on the list.

Tried Thunderbird but couldn't get it linked to Firebird so it was a pain trying to get from a link in an email, open Firebird and then paste the link...

Mozilla is good, old fashioned brilliance Easy to use and not too slow.

kmail is my equivalent for Eudora on windows. It is as easy to use and as easy to backup.

thunderbird would get my vote as the best, except as AMmullen said it won't link to firebird, and it also won't open links from within the client, either. so until those two things are fixed, my vote goes to evolution.

>make that AMMullan

This is fixed in current testing builds and will be fixed in the next landmark build (0.4). I build Thunderbird from CVS and came back to this thread by clicking a link in an Email.
