    That's one of the main reasons I switched from Sylpheed to
Thunderbird. It's handling of html is built-in. A second reason was I
found Sylpheed's IMAP-handling a little flakey. YMMV.

Flakey in what way?  So far, I haven't noted anything unusual with

As I recall (it's been a year or two since I switched) Sylpheed was timing out on one or two IMAP connections...waiting for the 60 sec timeout, then rebuilding the IMAP connection, at which point everything would be fine...until the next time when it would timeout again..etc etc. I spent a lot of time configuring and reconfiguring, Googline the problem etc. Thundebird never seems to have the problem.

As far as plugins, CLAWS is the definite winner. Sylpheed has very few (if any).
