I'm using Sylpheed here. It requires Gtk 2 (which should be
fine when you're using Gnome anyway), and it stores mails in
MH format (quite comparable to Maildir). Related to TB, it's
still very lightweight.

There has also been a Gtk 1 version (much more lightweight),
but I think it's already out of ports, and its UTF-8 support
does not exist. However, it's even faster than the current
version. :-)

Remember that it's a MUA. It's not a calendar, not a web
browser, not a multimedia player and not a PDF viewer. (But
you can interface it to open content based on file type by
using external programs, such as xmms, xpdf, xzgv etc.).
