E-mail client

I am looking for a 'nice' e-mail client that doesn't use KDE or GNOME libraries...

I haven't seen a site that has reviews or anything good =(

Anyone have suggestions? I have seen tons and don't want to install each one to see how it works - expecially with so many.... =(

POP3 and SMTP Server access with the ability to NOT delete the e-mails on the server.

Evolution maybe... has a few dependencies but none are really KDE or Gnome specific. Maybe Sylpheed as well.. not sure though, never used.

Pine as well and any other command line email program.

I like Thunderbird. Its a standalone Mozilla Mail client with a bunch of extra features. It uses its own toolkit (XUL), so it doesn't need GTK or QT.

be sure to get the latest builds, as its in active development, and each release is much better than the last.
