For a PC email reader, I would strongly suggest Eudora. It's not that
big, and it's pretty efficient. It has filter settings so you can sort
your CCTALK mail automatically into it's own folder.
It's by no means as good as Sylpheed, the mail client I use for this
list. Sylpheed has the powerful ability to view messages in threads.
Which makes for a MUCH nicer list-reading experience. But Sylpheed is
freenix only, I run it on a NetBSD system. And it's X11 so you can't
run it in a terminal shell.
