Question Where's Gnus?

Ah, yiz forgot Emacs as an option.

I use Gnus, some people use VM, others use rmail, all are part of GNU Emacs.
(could an emacs option be added? thanks)

didn't like kmail, i use m2 when surfing the net and to get notifications on email. used to using pine for uni through ssh which is always good, but my vote goes for evolution cause its just the main one i use when i got gkrellm notifying me of new mail.

Evolution is nice since it's integrates so much stuff, but its mail features are pretty limited compared to dedicated email apps.

I really love Sylpheed, it's way faster than the other client, and doesn't contain al the fancy (non needed) functions like evolution does. Hmm... Definately worh my vote!
