Thunderbird does have its issues from time to time, but I have to admint 
that I haven't been able to find an email client better than it these 
days.  And I've definitely looked.  (Last year I was having some TBird 
problems, and I kicked the tires on a whole bunch of clients.)  Ages ago 
I used to use KMail (and Eudora before that).  But today TBird seems to 
me to be the most functional email client around:  available for both 
Linux and Windows, good support for both POP and IMAP, excellent support 
for multiple email accounts, good spam filtering, very good mail 
filtering, support for add-ons (allowing me to add really awesome 
complementary functionality like the SearchWith add-on), etc.  So 
despite it's periodic problems, I think it's still the best there is.

Dunno ... I don't think I have any good suggestions for you.  Sorry!  :-(
