VM

http://www.nongnu.org/viewmail/
VM (View Mail) is a mail reader that runs under XEmacs and GNU Emacs. It was written as an alternative to the Emacs RMAIL mail reader by Kyle Jones.

VM is highly configurable and easy to use. It supports POP and IMAP mail servers, understands MIME, and handles mail folders in the standard UNIX mailbox format and the BABYL format used by the RMAIL mailer. It has a powerful virtual folder facility to facilitate searching as well as more advanced handling of multiple mail folders.
