Seems to be a mix of sylpheed, pine, and kmail (well I use kmail anyway ) around here. But you have so many options, don't limit yourself to what "everyone else is using". Check out and And search for email client.

Nothing behaves like my little trained mutt!
# Common e-mail tools
sendmail - postfix - sends mail to local users (and internet when configured correctly)
fetchmail - gets mail from internet accounts (non-Hotmail type)
procmail - sorts and delivers into separate mailboxes
mutt - mail client that sucks less than all the others

Evolution is good if you want something like Outlook.
I use Sylpheed most of the time, i like it.

Outlook export

Has anybody had success exporting Outlook Contacts, Addressbook, and Calender into Evolution?
I downloaded Outport for windows. I exported all my Outllook contact info into Outport format. I sent the files to my Linux machine using evolution and had no luck with Evolution's importer.

I have been able to successfully important all my Outlook mail folders though.
