I use KMail for the most part, but since Kmail2 I have become less of a fan.  
I have found another email client that works like KMail and I am still 
testing/setting it up on Sabayon.

>From the front page:

Claws Mail is an email client (and news reader), based on GTK+, featuring

    Quick response
    Graceful, and sophisticated interface
    Easy configuration, intuitive operation
    Abundant features
    Robustness and stability

The appearance and interface are designed to be familiar to new users coming 
from other popular email clients, as well as experienced users. Almost all 
commands are accessible with the keyboard.

The messages are managed in the standard MH format, which features fast access 
and data security. You'll be able to import your emails from almost any other 
email client, and export them just as easily.

Lots of extra functionality, like an RSS aggregator, calendar, or laptop LED 
handling, are provided by extra plugins.

Claws Mail is distributed under the GPL. 



The adventure of a lifetime.
