I believe you mean "GUI".  WYSIWYG doesn't apply to email, in which
you've no control over recipient client interpretation of client.
Netscape and Mozilla are compatible with both Linux and legacy MS Windows.  
Several mailers use standard mailbox formats allowing sharing of files.
A better general approach is to set up an IMAP server and access this
from various systems.  Divorce your client from your server and storage.

This is a FAQ answered several times a week here and on Usenet.
Search Google or Deja for general lists, or Freshmeat

tips on improving your Netscape experience through various config
