An alternative you may not have considered is just picking whatever
mailer works best for you (mutt is quite lean and mean for example), and
then use an external program to do the imap. Both isync and offlineimap
do an excellent job of synchronising local mail folders with folders on
a remote imap server. Then you can use whatever mail reader you like on
those folders. If you're not using mutt, offlinimap is probably a better
choice than isync.

Other benefits of this approach include being able to read your mail
while offline, and being able to swap in a different mail reader at will
without worrying about how good its imap support is.
