"I recently complained in the ITworld.com Linux Community Discussion forum about my problems with kmail. But one of the main reasons I started using KDE as my primary GUI last year was that kmail delivered the functionality I needed in an email client. Here's what happened."

"KDE's built-in email client, kmail, can handle multiple accounts and multiple folders. It includes an easy-to-use address book. In addition, it provides intelligent filtering so I can have recurring mail organized into the appropriate folders as it is received. These features have become requirements for me."

"If you're like me, you send and receive a substantial amount of mail, your livelihood depends on it, and you need to store messages for long periods of time, so you don't treat the selection of your email client as a trivial or unimportant task. I have three candidates on my short list, culled from those that have been recommended to me. They all appear to be good candidates for the job. The list includes Balsa, xfmail, and cscmail."
