You can try AUCTeX on Emacs. AFAIK it comes with Emacs 22 on Lenny.
My experience with AUCTeX is better than WinEdt, with tools like
RefTeX etc, and also preview for formulas and headings. AUCTeX made me
to convert from LyX.
There is also a KDE LaTeX editor which I can't remember the name... It
looks somewhat like WinEdt, so much that I didn't further try to learn it.
Also on the original thread: why nobody mentioned Gnus as an
alternative to Thunderbird? It can do anything (from what you say)
mutt does, and also can show you attached images, wash HTML etc. ;)
(If you're not using it from shell, though.)
Yes, I'm a of member of Church of Emacs. ;)
