I'm pretty sure Evo is the only game in town if you need Exchange
access (not counting browsers of course). I don't use Exchange so I
could change in a heartbeat (virtually all my mail is on IMAP servers)
but I still haven't found a MUA that convinces me as much as Evo,
despite its many faults.

BTW, the new beta of Thunderbird 3 is just out. I tried it yesterday.
Very promising IMHO. This could turn out to be the one :-)
