I'm not really much of a Wiki person, thus far.  So, even though ideally
I'd jump right in and add some, it's just not my cuppa, at this time.
But, in case you'd like to add them, here are a few logically required
to fill out the list:

Post Office -- Web site at http://www.tarball.net/postoffice/ has
               vanished, but maybe you can find a replacement site.
Althea -- http://althea.sourceforge.net/
Aileron -- http://ucsu.colorado.edu/~nwanua/Aileron/
Scribe -- http://www.memecode.com/scribe.php
GNUMail.app -- Reimplementation of NeXTStep's Mail.app within the GNUStep 
               framework, http://www.collaboration-world.com/gnumail/
YPMail.app -- Same idea, http://www.blackraven.cx/
Postilion -- Same idea, but in Tcl/Tk, http://www.postilion.org/ , site down
Mailliam -- still pre-release, http://www.mailliam.org/
XCmail -- http://www.js-home.org/XCmail/
XFMail -- depends on proprietary but gratis XForms graphics library,
JM_MailtTool -- Motif (ugh), http://home.t-online.de/home/mainzer/
SoapyMailer -- an X11 mailer in 4500 lines of Perl, http://coding.soapy.ch/
Adora -- http://www.sover.net/~senecal/adora.html
fruMailer -- http://frumailer.sourceforge.net/
Mama Mua -- http://www.lundqvist-zone.com/mamamua/
TkMail -- http://www.slac.stanford.edu/~raines/tkmail.html
TkRat -- http://www.tkrat.org/
Mahogany -- http://mahogany.sourceforge.net/
Cronos II -- http://sourceforge.net/projects/cronosii
gtkmail -- http://gtkmail.sourceforge.net/
Mail Harvester -- http://harvester.sourceforge.net/
MMC -- http://mmc.sourceforge.net/
PMail -- soon to be renamed, http://www.scottbender.net/pmail/
Pygmy -- http://pygmy.sourceforge.net/
Spruce -- http://spruce.sourceforge.net/
SQmail -- alpha release, http://sqmail.sourceforge.net/
Stuphead -- http://stuphead.asplinux.ru/stuphead/
TradeClient -- http://tradeclient.sourceforge.net/
Empath -- http://sourceforge.net/projects/empath/
jamail -- http://www.buildhigh.com/jamail.php4
Kiltdown -- http://kiltdown.sourceforge.net/
Liamail -- http://www.liamail.org/

I'm not much use in reviewing those, either, since I always prefer to 
reach my mail via ssh & GNU screen, and therefore gravitate towards 
console MUAs.

But I hope the above is of some use to you.

Cheers,                                      Right to keep and bear

rick@linuxmafia.com                           Or denied.  So there.
