Is there an IMAP email client on OSX (other than Mail.app) that allows you to hyperlink to mail messages?

I'm looking for a new email client for OSX because Mail.app seems to occasionally lose messages in my Sent folder.

"I use Mail.app exclusively even before my organization supported it in Snow Leopard (darn Microsoft Exchange Servers!) and I've noticed that when I immediately send a message such as a reply, I can't click the little ""replied to"" icon next to the original email I responded to to open my reply.

This has to do with the fact that my email has not been received in the Sent folder and therefore does not yet exist. Waiting for the one-minute auto check of incoming mail or manually clicking the Get Mail button has always resolved this issue for me.

Beyond that, you can set ""automatically CC/BCC myself"" in the Preferences under the Composing section. I'd recommend in that case to also add a rule that sorts these emails to a secondary folder, otherwise you'll be knee-deep in your messages to other people. Then again, with the Threading option enabled, maybe that would bring some good context to messages received where the remote party failed to include what I said to them (and I'm forgetful at times)."
