Perhaps thunderbird now works properly, I have no idea since I uninstalled it many moons ago when it didn't know how many emails it had retrieved.

I persisted for about 3 months with messages informing me that it had retrieved several thousand (or even tens of thousands) emails when, in reality, it had retrieved about 20 or so.

I've had no cause to reconsider. There are plenty of others.

Claws-Mail

Many moons ago I used Becky! on Windows, one of the few Windows MC's that can deal with multiple accounts sharing the same filters.

When I moved to Linux, Sylpheed-Claws was the MC that offered me the best experience with those requirements in mind. S-C later moved to Claws-Mail, but it just got better. Very good interaction (on IRC) with their developers. Goot well-maintained OpenSource that welcomes new contributors. The source is easy to grasp.

Claws Mail has so far never let me down.

Thunderbird's calendar addon (lightning) caused instant crashes (2 years ago or so) for several months while I waited for update, which did not come.

So I migrated to KMail2 which has the nicer user Interface for my taste as well. Killer Feature in my view is the Integration of gpg in the workflow. This is really making outstandingly simple the use of encryption, after this there is no excuse left not to encrypt IMHO.

There was a time, years ago, when I liked KMail, but the developers never properly incorporated the ability to view and forward HTML mail which is, usually, better than 90% of the e-mail I receive each day. Is that still the case with KMail2?
Thanks.

No. There is a button in the top menu bar and a quite narrow Strip at the left side of any html-mail labelled "html-Mail" (or some such). Click on either of them to Change to html (and back AFAIR).


Type of mails to send has a Default to be set somwhere in the menu. I never tried to Change it in an unsent open mail, probably there is a way here too, but I don't know it right now.

I've used Thunderbird for years but it gets stupider and stupider.

I am using seamonkey now but I dont like it much.

I am shopping and will watch this poll closely.

mutt is too much learning curve for me right now but indeed mutt may be the future for me

I use thunderbird. It lacks a decent way to oganise email accounts without add-ons and, for users of lots of accounts, it gets tricky but it works.
Sadly, I see it being replaced by twenty instances of webmail in the next few yeatrs.

Thunderbird - does exactly what an E-Mail client should do.
