KMail has my vote.
I'm a longtime KDE user, so naturally I gravitated to KMail. I had been
using Netscape Mail on WindowMaker for years (Thunderbird is sleeker
and better, but this was Back in the Day) and decided to give KMail a
go, and haven't looked back.
It offers tight integration with the rest of the KDE family of apps,
supports awesome filtering capabilities so I can file incoming mail
into a hundred different areas, and generally does everything I need
and then some. It can be used by the most basic e-mail newbie (like my
five-year-old son) but still has the power to do crazy regexp rule
matching for a power user like me. It has nice searching,
including "virtual folders" (in fact it had them before they were all
Hugh mentioned that client-side IMAP filtering isn't supported, and that
may be true-- I don't use IMAP so I don't know. But I'd say if anyone
is using KDE and hasn't given KMail an honest go, they really should.
Heck, even the GNOME crowd should take a look, because it seems much
better than Evolution (although I admit my experience there was limited
to "I'll try it for a day to see if it sucks").
