Copy and paste sometimes doesn't work correctly.
It can crash, if a server isn't accessible.
It does mark mails as read, if you switch between folders.
The GUI often is disgusting broken.
It has a very unique maildir, that can't be shared with other MUAs.
Depending to the update, it could happen, that it doesn't "transform"
correctly from ISO to UTF and vice versa.
Etc. pp.

OTOH, I didn't find another mailer that fit halfway to my needs and that
does work with the provider settings I need.
