Yeah, sup is still a little experimental but quite an awesome client. Also, for
version 2, they are planning on splitting out the client and server
functionality into two separate projects, which makes me salivate somewhat.

I use mutt these days, which handles threading quite well. I also really really
like KMail (I used it for around 10 years), but it's just got too slow and
resource intensive with all the nepomuk stuff.

(who just can't bare the idea of using a web browser to do his email.)
