Internet & Networking I had been an avid user of Pine for almost five years. Recently, I decided to move to a greener posture. I dumped my good old Pine and settled with a graphical client. Although, sometime I miss the simple, fast, text based interface, the new relationship is shaping up to be an exciting one. We have our bad times, but overall I am happy with the switch.

Oh for a nice e-mail client...

I'm trying to find a nicer e-mail client I can use here at work instead of horrible old Netscape mail. Unfortunately I'm on Redhat 7.2 and don't have superuser permissions.

Tried Kmail and it's nice, but unfortunately lacks the ability to filter into IMAP folders. This is a major bummer.

Tried installing Thunderbird but I can't seem to get round not having libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 and presumably some other shared libs.

I could probably put up with mozilla mail but I can't get it to play nice with Firefox for some reason.

Can't install a recent verion of Balsa due to library problems, and the one I have here (V1.x something) doesn't do filtering.

Can't install Evolution without root permissions.


As you may have gathered, I'm no Linux expert, but I'd be grateful for any suggestions if there's anything else around that might fit the bill.
