It's a highly religious and platform-dependent thing.  I'll put in a plug for
Claws Mail, which I use and generally find to be excellent, in that its warts
(which they all have) aren't bad enough to make me want to chuck my laptop out
the window.  It does both IMAP and NNTP pretty well, and can call an external
editor for composition.  It also rarely crashes these days. :)

Oh, and to keep things roughly on topic, it embeds Python so you can write
nice little scripts for a variety of actions.  E.g. I have a little Python
script to automatically pick my python.org address for messages to Python
mailing lists.

That's all I'll say on the subject in this mailing list, but I'm happy to
answer other questions off-line.
