I am going to try Mahogany, because nobody knows much about it. Then I am going to post here whatever I learn. It needs to be built from source.
-----------------------------------------
No wonder nobody knows about it. Won't compile, recent compiler complains about implicit typecasts. Depends (optionally) on ancient version of Python.

So that's it, Sylpheed, Claws, Mutt, Alpine, Emacs based clients. GNOME and KDE dependent clients don't count. Anything else ? No ? Then I am marking this solved.

Only GUI client I've found to be satisfactory is Sylpheed. Claws forked Sylpheed and butchered it.

For console/CLI (optionally with a little help from mu/notmuch/mairix):

You might be interested in mbsync. It's always been a lot faster for me than offlineimap.

*edit* I should have mentioned that mbsync is inside the isync package on SBo.

Real geeks read their email with telnet:

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...chg.65%29.aspx

Even Microsofties know how!

I have not read the article, but if you mean something like

telnet pop3.my.provider 110

I've done that when I had problems. There is an RFC with POP protocol described.

I've been using Claws for many years, have thousands of emails and it has always been able to connect with IMAP to GMail and Yahoo without issue. Just because they both want you to use 2 form verification doesn't mean you have to use it, just understand the risk and change your password every few weeks. I started with slypheed, but moved to Claws for plugins, including the calendar plugin which can sync with GMail Calendar.
Understanding the standalone email clients are pretty stable and static I was looking for a standalone QT based email client and came across trojita. An interesting masters project, which has received GSoC and KDE support while maintaining it's independence of KDELIBS. Current version lacks ability to encrypt emails but it can decrypt. It has support via IRC. http://jkt.flaska.net/blog/tags/trojita/ Cheers.

Do you ever write HTML messages. Once a year is a period when I need HTML messages. Christmas. Generally, I know a MIME structure of HTML message, but I have no way to verify the final result. Even with Seamonkey or Thunderbird you can't be sure that people o Outlook will see it correctly. If you compose it "by hand", even the smallest mistake could make message unreadable, which is embarrassing.

I'd switch to Claws, not tomorrow, but in 15 minutes from now, if I had a reliable way to handle HTML messages. I wouldn't mnd an external program, either. I'd switch and forget that Thunderbird and Seamonkey ever existed.
