I used a lot of free email clients in my life: Thunderbird, Foxmail, Pegasus, Dreamail...
Thunderbird and Foxmail, I used them for years. They are very stable and powerful programs, but requires tons of RAM to run.
The Bat is very powerful, very easy, very pretty and only requires a bit of RAM to run. It's very light. Special program.
I like TB very much, it has excellent templates, powerful filters and useful plugins, I am using it since version 1 and even I tested many alternatives, I am staying with The Bat! because its the best
It has everything needed except 1) scripting language for advance use and 2) HTML templates (templates currently only allows plain text). Apart that it is very stable, open (many import/export for e-mails/contacts), and easily transportable (backup/restore the database is a snap).
One can regret the lack of communication of its developers.
Also, no cross-platform but Windows only.
