One obvious choice may be Mozilla (or Netscape) Messenger.  There's
something to be said for running the exact same client on both systems.  In
particular, all of the menus are in the same place, they have the same
keystrokes, can use the same filters, etc.  Also consider using IMAP for
mail storage.  If you make that switch, you can play with mail clients at a
whim and have all of your mail automagically appear in the new program.

Have you experimented with Wine to see if your software will run under
FreeBSD?  Is there a Linux version that might run?
