Just FYI, evolution has both of these, plus all the features Brian
listed, plus it integrates really easily with PGP and can be setup to
automatically sign outgoing messages, with an easy tab to disable it on
a per message basis.

It handles multiple email accounts quite nicely too, automatically
detecting the address used to contact you and replying with the same
one, and then picking up appropriate settings for that address, e.g. you
can have separate sigs for your accounts and it picks the right one.

I actually don't think evolution is missing any features, and includes
calendar, tasks and contacts too. If you use Gnome as your desktop and
want a GUI based mail tool then I'd recommend it.

If you don't use Gnome pulling all of Gnome in just to use it is
propably overkill.
