My $0.02 suggestions: Linux, BSD <http://distrowatch.com/> or Plan 9
<http://plan9.bell-labs.com/plan9/>.

ReactOS <http://www.reactos.org/> might be worth a mention too; it's
an Open Source, Windows-compatible, OS.  Included here for anyone who
might be interested in doing further research/testing. ;-)

Again, my $0.02:

Linux, BSD: Mutt <http://www.mutt.org/>

Plan 9*: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Plan_9_applications#Email_and_News_programs>

ReactOS: Mutt via Cygwin <http://www.cygwin.com/> or possibly Mutt 32
<http://www.oocities.org/win32mutt/win32.html>

* I haven't worked with email on Plan9 as yet x)
