Is there a stable email client or email client plugin that will support GMail-like conversations? [closed]

Conversations in GMail are such an incredibly simple yet powerful way to look at mail. I get about twenty emails a day from various clients and I hate looking at a flat file of all emails, and I hate looking at "per client" email folders. With GMail I can just look at a specific conversation. I can see a few lines from each in the collapsed titles so that I can quickly remember what was said previously, and I can expand them if I need details or need to quote something.

"Outlook 2010, still in beta, has a new Conversation view, as described here:

Manage large volumes of e-mail with ease

Conversation view in Outlook 2010
improves the tracking of e-mail
conversations—reducing information
overload—and helps you manage large
amounts of e-mail with ease. Entire
conversations can be condensed and
categorized with a single click. And,
new conversation management tools
enable you to save valuable inbox
space by turning dozens of e-mails
into just a few conversations using
the Clean Up feature. Or, use the
Ignore feature to send the entire
conversation to your Deleted Items.

Of course, a Beta version does not qualify as ""stable"", although it has been very stable for me so far.

It supports of course retrieving emails from GMail:

You can easily manage e-mail messages
from multiple mailboxes. Synchronize
multiple e-mail accounts from services
such as Hotmail, Gmail, or just about
any other provider to Outlook 2010.
Improved connectivity with Microsoft
Exchange Server supports the use and
management of multiple Exchange Server
e-mail accounts in one location."
