I use a bunch of different computers every day and an Android phone to
get to my gmail, so a web interface is mostly what I see. The gmail
app on the phone lacks some of the finesse of gmail in the phone's
browser but it's quicker and easier so I live with it.

I can never get Evolution to run for more than a few minutes on any
platform and I don't currently need kmail's mass of features, so I'm
happy with Google's web interface. I use Outlook in an XP VM at work
to get to the Exchange server there. I've used Eudora and loved it,
Thunderbird and liked it, Apple's Mail and licked it[0], Pine and
wondered why I bothered[1].

Web mail has come a long way since Hotmail[2].

[2] Gee, is that still going? How quaint.
