The problem with most MUAs, is that they don't support advanced
features, like SASL authentication (CRAM-MD5, Kerberos, X.509, etc) or
disconnected (offline) operation when using IMAP. That's one of the
reasons I keep using Evolution, since I *need* Kerberos authentication
support to access my IMAP mailbox. AFAIK, only Pine does also support
Kerberos authentication via SASL.
