Hello Everyone,

Any recommendations for a good open-source email client - I currently use Thunderbird (and have done for many years) but the new version is very slow and has lost many features that I loved.

It's either a new client or reversion back to V2 and I am not sure I how that will work.

Cheers
Matthew

I've been using the KDE mail client - Kmail - for years, as it allows me to check multiple mailboxes, both local and remote from a single login.  It is quite happy to run under Gnome but you'll need to install quite a bit of additional KDE infrastructure to support it.  If you're using KDE then you should already have most of it installed.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

thanks - fraid I run winxp tho.  would like to try linux but cannot risk the time it will take to acclimatize for my office-critical needs; i am almost certain that if I could take a few weeks out from having to work I could get back to speed, but if I take a few weeks off work it is to lie on beach. and thus microsoft wins whilst being inferior
