Readers' Choice Awards 2014

Best E-mail Client

If I didn't know firsthand how many hard-core geeks live among us, I might accuse Kyle Rankin of voting fraud. His beloved Mutt e-mail client doesn't take top spot, but for a program without any graphical interface, third place is impressive!

  • Gmail 24.7%

  • Mutt 6.8%

  • Evolution 5.5%

  • KMail 5.3%

  • Other 3.2%

  • SeaMonkey 1%

  • Opera Mail .9%

  • Sylpheed .4%

It's time for another Readers' Choice issue of Linux Journal! The format last year was well received, so we've followed suit making your voices heard loud again.
