Evolution has all the things you are asking for, except that it takes a
lot of time for startup on my 300 mhz P2. It has good configurable
filters, calender etc etc (which many of us may not use). One thing I
didn't like about it is that the way to:, Cc etc are handled is still a
bit crude. I was unable to change the Cc button to Bcc button easily.
Aside from all these, it is evolving and is already a mature reader.
