In this case, out of the commonly used programs one could
be chosen, e. g. Thunderbird. But also lightweighter
applications such as Sylpheed or even KMail (when you're
already intending to use KDE) or Evolution (Gnome's
equivalent, if I remember correctly) is an option.

Using fetchmail to get the messages _independently_ from
any MUA gives you the chance to test various applications,
or even use them in parallel, employing one and the same
mail data. Using the system's mailer (e. g. via SMARTHOST)
makes you fully independent from the traditional POP/SMTP
accounts _in_ the MUA.
