I finally got fed up with Thunderbird, and have recently switched to
mutt. Yeah, I know, it's not a clicky-clicky, but so far I haven't
missed Thunderbird at all.
Another _huge_ bonus, in my opinion, with mutt is ease of mail reading
when I'm on strange machines. I can just ssh to one of my boxes and read
it that way. And as far as backing up the configuration goes, all I need
to keep track of is a small .muttrc file.
Just my 2c.
The world has many unintentionally cruel mechanisms that are not
designed for people who walk on their hands.
