What's everybody's favorite mail program?

The only X mail program I use is tkelm.  I still don't use
it very often.  I normally just stick with elm.

What are you using?

1. Getting X to run (everybody's favorite past-time, it seems).

I got a "Diamond Stealth 64 Graphics 2001" PCI video card, with 2MB DRAM.  The
monitor is a "GVC" model M1566LR.  Although in Windoze the 1024x768x256 colors
resolution is not the highest I can do, I can't get X to come up with the
standard SVGA 800X600 config file.  startx blanks the display, but that's
about it.  Switching back via the ALT-F key reveals the following messages.
This is the Slackware 3.1 kernel, with the SVGA X server loaded:
