Thunderbird has really improved recently. It's cross-platform, mature, and feature-filled. It's the email client of the year because it came back from the dead and now it looks like development will in fact accelerate in the coming months.

KMail has THE integration of GPG (via KGPG and Kleopatra). It is just -- genial (for beginners like me ). Thunderbird let me down a few years ago, crashed reproducibly but no reaction on their bugzilla thingy. So I switched to KMail...

My first choice is Thunderbird, followed closely by SeaMonkey. I'm glad that Mozilla isn't really involved in the decisions made to either program, as they've been doing stupid and/or malicious stuff for the past few years.

I used Thunderbird for last few years, but always hated it. Before that, I really liked Claws with POP3, but not its IMAP support.

After Thunderbird decided to axe all working addons, it was the last straw for me. I finally got rid of it, and now am just using webmail with a desktop notifier.

Anyone know whether Alpine has been updated in order to be able to send email using SMTP passwords on more providers?

In the beginning we use Microsoft Entourage (MacOSX hosts) but it crashes when database got more than 2GB. We migrate all Entourage mail to Thunderbird mail and no problems. Some MacOSX hosts have more than 30000 mails....and working!!!!
Thunderbird is my choice

I liked classic Thunderbird (through early 2000s before the first big Mozilla interface change of adding tabs) but for years it hasn't been up to par, with forced features, other features or add-ons breaking, and no other mail client equalling classic Thunderbird. Nevertheless, I'm voting for it as 'least worst option,' though that voting behaviour seems like following incorrect popular opinion.

Isn't SeaMonkey the same as classic Thunderbird?
