Best Ubuntu email client

SilverHawk

I'm pretty new to Ubuntu, so much of it is a brave new world for me. The two main email clients, although there are others, seem to be Evolution and Thunderbird. Is one generally regarded as superior to the other? What Ubuntu email client do you choose?

Thunderbird would be my choice. Evolution is ok (from what I remember, I haven't used it in almost two years), but I think that it can be harder to configure than Thunderbird. There are also lots of extensions that you can use to make Thunderbird match your needs.

I would go with Thunderbird. Way better than Evolution.
