I've recently switched from exmh2 to sylpheed-claws.  sylpheed is gtk based
and has all of the stuff I've wanted for some time:

  o Good IMAP support (including SSL and the ability to read other peoples
    mail boxes)
  o Seamless cutover from (n)mh based clients such as exmh - well, I had to
    rewrite my filters.
  o The ability to configure/use more than one from address.
  o Good filtering support.

I've been switching mail over to IMAP... all pretty seamlessly and without
any disasters (well, so far!).
