I just finished an install of a fresh gentoo install with gnome. Now I need an email program, what should I get? When I used KDE a while ago, I liked kMail, but I want to try somthign else (thats possibly better)

I've always been a huge fan of Thunderbird. It's clean, it does IMAP4 & POP3, it's free. I sure can't argue with that. :D

But seriously, though... give it a try. (I suggest downloading the binaries, especially if you're on an AMD64... compiling is slooooow.)

If you're looking for something completely different you might try the Gnome/evolution combination. It supports GnuPG and spamassassin, but in my experience, unless you create a bunch of rules for spamassassin, it's not as robust as Thunderbird's junk e-mail filtering, which you should try first.

Moved from Unsupported Software to Duplicate Threads in favour of Best mail client?
