I would imagine any other imap client for linux.

Also, thunderbird isn't useless overnight just because development stops.

it is, however worse than useless because of the bugs that have been introduced that make it unusable. – Stu Feb 20 '15 at 12:35
like ? Works just fine for me. – Sirex Feb 23 '15 at 19:22
weird. most of those bugs are dated during time that i've used thunderbird every single day. Never had any of those issues. – Sirex Feb 24 '15 at 23:51
Then you are blessed, because it happens to me constantly. Every time I try and send an email I am thwarted by the changing focus problem. This is compounded by the undo problem, where since I've accidentally deleted messages, I hit ctrl-z to undo the action, and it manages to undelete a much older deleted message, not the one I just deleted. These are all things that used to work that have been broken recently. – Stu Feb 25 '15 at 1:17
