Hiri provides it too.

FFS I sound like a walking advert :-) I just use the thing.

I use Tbird for all my non-Exchange accounts, because it works in the 
traditional manner like all other email clients do (including the 
Outlook Express that used to be shipped with Windows, and maybe still 
is). It does almost everything, and there are plugins for almost 
everything else. Its editor is not the best, but then email editors are 
universally horrible except for Emacs RMAIL :-) Tbird also makes it 
trivial to move messages between accounts by dragging and dropping them.

The only thing really missing is the ability to re-thread replies that 
were sent by poorly-written mailers or poorly-trained users: the ones 
which pop up as new threads even though they have Re: and an existing 
subject. Fortunately I still run mutt which will fix this for you.
