I tried TKMail a while back and I then realized how fast mutt opens
my 2000 message mailing list folders. Oh, well, good luck at finding
an email program that fits your needs. BTW, you can run programs as
multiple users in one X session. Just do an "xhost +" in an xterm
as the user that started the X server. Then use "su username" to
switch to another user. Finally, run the mail program as another
user. That might be the best bet for your situation.
