From mihai.bazon.net: Because Elisp is not a multithreaded language, it kind of freezes while checking for new mail. This can be bad if you're using the same Emacs instance for other purposes, like, writing code. :-) Not the case for me—I don't mind starting a new Emacs instance especially for WL; until one week ago I was using Thunderbird, which needs tons of RAM. Emacs is a lot lighter. See More
From mihai.bazon.net: I'm currently using it with BBDB (for keeping my address book), Flyspell (spell checking as you type), Mailcrypt (digital signatures and encryption, here's my public key btw). Can be integrated with Bogofilter, SpamAssassin, and probably whatever you want for spam filtering. See More
Gmail brings much of the functionality and power of Google's search engine to the app's search. You can use operators such as label:, is:, OR, has: among others, define date ranges, limit search to specific groups and so on. And, you can do it all amazingly fast. The search will also try to predict what you're trying to search for before you've even finished your query and offer up those results. See More
The app allows inserting files from Drive straight to email or uploading attachments to Drive before sending them out. It will also notify if the person you're sending the file can open the file or if you should change the sharing settings for that file beforehand. Finally, you can choose which one of your Google accounts you want visible in the app. See More
Gmail offers the ability to automatically organize your mail into specific categories: Primary Social Promotions Updates Priority Each of the categories can be disabled and you can move your mail around from category to category or set your own rules which sender should be put in which category.

It uses SQLite DB for storing email messages from all accounts in one single DB file. This makes it portable as in you can just copy one SQLite DB file and move your offline mail content to another PC/location. Also, one SQLite DB file for all messages means it is incredibly fast. See More
Supports both multiple accounts from different servers / services simultaneously (both inbound and sending) as well as multiple identities. Incoming accounts have a default identity and it switches automatically to the correct identity depending on the mail folder you are in. See More
Kontact has been actively developed for over a decade, with components such as the mail and calender going back even further. Development continues to this day with an active and responsive open source community made up of both volunteers and paid developers behind it. See More
