I voted for sylpheed however, I really use claws-mail. It's a fork of sylpheed and I really really like it. It's blazing fast with gpg security with html too on a pentium 133 mhz...yes that's my cpu

KMail. It has several very useful features and commands, not available (at least as far as I know) in another Mail Clients.

In KMail, you can choose between mbox and maildir formats for each individual folder. Depending of size and usage of message base, it is very convenient, specially with really large message bases. Also increases interoperability between different mail-related systems.

In KMail, you can copy message from one folder to another, not only move as usual. Now imagine e.g. folder WWW-Orders immediately getting copies of your Orders and Invoices while they still remain also in your inbox pending possible letter exchange with merchant etc. Disk space is cheap nowadays

In KMail, you have "Remove Duplicate Messages" comand. This is simple but excellent option absent in other Mail Clients, AFAIK. Everybody collecting mail from more than one source will understand me well

There are also other nice things in KMail. Sure it has also all usual Mail Client functions as all of them do. Bayes spam filtering works excellent with KMail etc.

Thumbs up KMail

I use KMail now, because it is so nice to use when integrated into Kontact. Everything PIM in one place.

Thumbs up Mail choice.

What about Gmail?
This is for me the the best, it has great capacity to store all of your mails and a wonderful site to store what I call Nudgers (a poor memory aid for non secure passwords)I just send myself an E-mail!
Happy New Year folks.

I guess it's not going to win but it's still Evolution for me although I would like the 'front page' bit back. I like to have the notes and calendar e.t.c.

Thunderbird has to be the one. In 2005, for about 3 months, I was sharing it between WinXP and Linux with the profile on a fat32 partition. Worked like a dream. Now that I am full converted, I have looked at Kmail, but since I don't use KOffice it doesn't work for me. On my Gnome desktop I have just started trying out Evolution to see how it works, and have been testing SquirrelMail since that came with my new webserver.
