mutt rules! If you gotta have sender/fetcher/client monolithic pointy-clicky thingy, you probably want Evolution.

# 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

SquirrelMail web mail
Why use Hotmail when there is LinuxMail?
Gotmail, a utility to download mail from Hotmail type accounts

Sylpheed! It is the wasp's legs.
Oh, and completely butting in here, anyone know the 'parameters' to use when setting Sylpheed up as your default email client in Galeon? I've got as far as it opening a compose dialog box, but it doesn't fill in the recipient's address (or subject line). Cheers all.
