If I needed IMAP support, or didn't have an external program doing my
spam handling, yes, I would. I'd likewise consider broken a mail client
that doesn't handle mailing lists I'm subscribed to in a graceful manner.

As is, I'm tempted to consider my mail setup broken as far as putting
mailing list posts in the right folders -- it doesn't do it automatically,
and it can get screwed up if folks send me mail directly with their
headers screwed up in the right way -- but the work arounds I've got
suffice, and I'm not sure handling it better is actually possible.

So what's stopping y'all from getting clients that work right? It's
not like mutt's expensive, or that there aren't other free mailers you
could use. I was under the impression that evolution held up fairly well
these days.

Don't assume I speak for anyone but myself. GPG signed mail preferred.
