Similar for me: was very pleased to find Kmail when I switched from Windows to Mandrake Linux in the late nineties, as it was very similar then to Eudora I had run under Win95.

Later, as KDE became more and more bloated, it was only Kmail that kept me from moving to something lighter, which I finally did five years ago, and started using Claws-Mail.

Wonder how many of us here are old Eudora users...
