Thunderbird, it just works, simple for email, used it for years and never had a reason to change.

I'll vote for sylpheed, as this is what I use now. Very fast, all the good features, and great interface. Another favorite is seamonkey mail.

seamonkey.

since i voted that for the browser, too.

it's like what thunderbird should've stuck with.
i am amazed how sluggish thunderbird is (*), and how light seamonkey mail is, with all the same features.

(*) if you have more than 1 mail account and a spinning hard drive, you will notice.

Thunderbird was uninstalled from all of my machines years ago because its GnuPG support ("Enigmail") is incredibly unreliable. On Linux and Unix, I usually use Emacs (here: Gnus) for that.

Won't let me vote for two :-( Voted claws this time.

I use kmail and claws mail. Tried sylpheed but it is unusable since all of my email accounts use imap and sylpheed filters don't work for that. So I installed claws, it immediately picked up the sylpheed configuration so all of my mailboxes were present and functioning. Pity they don't understand regular expressions properly for the filters which work fine otherwise.

(Hint: . means any character - to include an actual . it is escaped with backslash. Try that and claws unhelpfully escapes the backslash but it doesn't escape an unadorned period).

Thunderbird works well for me. I did use FossaMail in the past, but it has been discontinued in 2017. I would like to see FossaMail revived. FossaMail used the Goanna engine that is used by the PaleMoon browser.
