if you don't already, use IMAP and you can use different MUAs at the
same time, no need to worry about different ways they treat mailboxes,
about file locking, different mailbox formats etc. I guess all the MUAs
worth trying support IMAP.
I use netscape mostly (not that bad, only major flaw is that it does
check only inbox for new mail), evolution is becoming fairly good,
mozilla is almost stable as well.
I also prefer doing mail filtering separately (not using MUAs
facilities). makes a lot of sense (separate tasks by separate programs,
do one thing and do it right).
