Can anyone suggest a good GTK+ e-mail reader/writer? I have cron getting
my e-mail so the client doesn't even need to have POP/IMAP.
I recently switched from Kmail to Thunderbird, and I would recommend
either of them. Kmail seems to thread better, but Tbird is not bad
either. Tbird is very customizable with extensions. The only problem
with either is speed:
1) Kmail's built in spam filter (bogofilter) is _s_l_o_w_
2) Thunderbird has a 1/10 second delay when switching messages.
Also, Tbird's default keyboard shortcuts are a pain in the ass. You
cannot browse messages and scroll messages with the arrow keys only.
The only extension that solves it (Nostalgy) doesn't do it very much
better: you must hold CTRL while arrowing keying to scroll.
Last month I tried KMail/KDE for a couple of weeks, because of how
the GNOME people have their heads stuck up MSFT's ass.
But couldn't stand it. The keyboard shortcuts wouldn't do what I
want them to do (even after considerable customization).
So I went back to Icedove & GNOME.

"the GNOME people have their heads stuck up MSFT's ass." Say what? What did I miss? What do you mean Ron? BTW try XFCE4. I like it.
