There's no good GUI one anymore, so I voted alpine, but honestly I use the plain Unix-based 'mail' command more.

Yet another landslide victory for TB.

I think Sylpheed is wildly under-appreciated.

Thunderbird is over-appreciated.

On Windows: Pandora Mail (non-free).
On macOS: MailMate (non-free).
On other systems: Usually, GNU Emacs with its built-in Gnus.

Of course, "any". E-mail is important in my daily life.

I'd never use proprietary email clients (or web browsers).

I made the experience that proprietary software tends to have a better QA than free software.

Depends. I agree that a large project with active QA tend to be better but also it takes longer. Take a look at kmail for instance that became my go-to client (with KDE PIM libs) but it took it a while to get anywhere useful.

I have 2FA authentication on most of my mail accounts, from several providers and Thunderbird was the easiest to get set up in the end..
