Kmail or Thunderbird

I'm wondering whether to use Kmail as the mail client on my recently installed system or install Thunderbird. I was using Mozilla Mail previously. What do you think? Any better suggestions?

If you already use Kontact/kwallet, you can import your old mail easily, and have your address book and info alreay availible in kontact, and kwallet. If you don't or won't use this functionality, then continue on with Thunderbird. I use it personally, and find it really fits my needs for a mail client perfectly. Try both (I did), and see which one you like.

I use both. I think KMail (Kontact) is much nicer.
