Personally, for PIM, I use my Palm.  Even if you don't have a palm, you
could use one of the palm syncers, like gnome-pilot and never sync...

Before that, I used Remind or a postgresql/python cobble when my main
box was my 486 (now its an Athlon).  Before that, I just used a plain
text file that I wrote in a consistant format so I could use sort on it.

For email, I use mutt.

What is the advantage of having a PIM integrated with email?  That's
what VCs are for.
