I want to emphasize the last two points.

- Blazingly fast! (/low memory footprint?)
- Everything just works...

By the way, does Thunderbird has that thread view? It's really useful
for mail lists.
That's a feature I really like in Claws and Kmail.

I do think that HTML composing (although I don't really use it) is a
must for nowadays.
It should  at least be available as an option.
