The best IMAP client for Gmail in Linux [closed]

I'd like to use an IMAP client to have an offline backup and access to Gmail. Now I use mutt, but I am not very satisfied. What is the best IMAP client for Linux to use with Gmail?

Thunderbird should be good, if you are intending to use a separate email client

Apart of Thunderbird i found Claws-mail, which was quite convenient in the matter of memory consumption for my old laptop. It's available under yum in Fedora repositories (should be in apt-get in Debians as well).

I voted Thunderbird, but I'd also add Evolution, specially if you're running a Gnome desktop.

"I have used both Evolution and KMail and never had a problem using gmail's IMAP with either one. Kmail got a bit 'twitchier' after the move to KDE4, but it's mostly settled down now.

I'm using Evolution right now on Ubuntu, no complaints."

"Here is a link to a webpage that rates options and has a very good feature comparison chart at the bottom. From a personal view, I think a look at ClawsMail is worth the time.
