Thunderbird always gets my choice

Thunderbird! Clean, elegant and extensible. That, and I can run it on Windows too, for OS-to-OS consistency.

Kmail always seemed awkward and overly complicated. I don't like the design. I'd take Evolution over Kmail, I think.

Bayesian spam filter
Can also understand classifications by server-based filters such as SpamAssassin
Quick search - "virtual folders"
it's Mozilla Thunderbird guys

I has to try 3 different ones in less than one month. I was liking kmail because of its kde integration but got stuck with a bug; so I started using TB, didnt like it from the beginning, not light enough, I stopped using it because the open option didnt work for pdf attachments. Now im using claws, its fast and easy to use, Ill probably stay with it, only problem with it is that it freezes when I try to load the clamav plugin.

About the ClamAV plugin and Claws Mail - this is caused by a bug in libclamav where loading the signature database was really slow. It has since been fixed, so your remedy is to upgrade ClamAV to the latest version, 0.91.2 regains the speed it had before.

I voted for Claws. It's fast and light, has no problem with Gmail that I've come across, secure (no html message gets loaded without the users say so and images are likewise subject to user discretion) and it works with the rather odd choice of browser I have installed (32 bit Swiftweasel on a 64 bit machine).
