What does evolution have that kmail doesn't have? Serious question; I have looked at evolution but stuck with kmail through both intertia and overall satisfaction.

I used to read my mail using Evolution, yet I have migrated to zdesktop (Yahoo! Zimbra Desktop), it would be appreciated to include zdesktop in the poll.
Zdesktop is a feature rich, multi-platform mail client, from Yahoo!, and it is open source as well.

+1 to Gnus. It's a pity that it's not on the list.

Thunderbird got my vote. It handles multiple mail accounts good enough for me.
