I've used Firefox/Thunderbird for over two years, but I am not satisfied with Firefox 1.5 and find I am using Opera more often.

Fiferox is slow, ugly and resourcehungry bastard, I wish this program never born.

Evolution/Opera

I haven't used outlook for a few years, but when I see others using it, reading emails in page preview looks quite nice.

I dont check my mail in linux too often lately so I would say something like Opera/eudora [probably going to go back to thunderbird soon though.]

I never liked the look of mozilla suite but I bet it is probably better than Opera as far as suite software goes.

Is seamonkey better than Firefox/Thunderbird ? I haven't tested it yet.
Are any satisfied people using seamonkey after switching from firefox/thunderbird who could explain the main advantages of switching ?
I also use opera sometime, but I dont like the tabs behavior (and browsing system), even if this is much more quicker than firefox...

That would be me... 8)

I'm using it as we speak, and am quite happy with it. Seamonkey appears to be quite a bit faster than Firefox.
Also Seamonkey has a smaller memory print than Firefox&Thunderbird together. Always welcome! ;-)

The roaming profiles feature is also nice, as soon as they get it to work properly... :wink:

And so much more useless ay least Konqueror anyway, how I wish they would really focus on the web component more sigh. I havent really got the chance to ty Kmail but it can't be suckier than m2.

Konqueror.

Don't know about the mail client as I usually don't have any reason to use one.
