Gmail also allows for a POP3 interface.  I'd originally used the
suggested IMAP interface and then had a bit of a net outage.  I
discovered that I had no copies of my inbox messages--apparently, they
resided on Google's servers.   So I went to the POP interface, where the
message is deleted from the server when I receive it.

Otherwise, for me, it's been a progression of email clients.  elm, pine,
eudora, Courier, Pegasus and finally Thunderbird, which has worked
passably well to date.
