I've been using hotot, and I am very satisfied, because:

  • It's lightweight
  • It has preview for images
  • Threaded Conversations
  • Extensions Support (although there aren't any at the moment, AFAIK)
  • It just looks good

There are a few quirks, this client is new, but improving rapidly.

Add the 'ppa:hotot-team' ppa(see this for how to add a ppa) then install hotot via the software center.
