JFTR your list is missing at least Claws Mail, Sylpheed and Evolution
3.36.3 ;).

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep -r -A20 -i Jun\ 2020 ".local/share/evolution/mail/local/.FreeBSD.Quest/cur/" | grep Claws | cut -d: -f3 | sort -u

 Claws Mail (linux)
 Claws Mail 3.17.4 (GTK+ 2.24.32; i686-w64-mingw32)
 Claws Mail 3.17.5 (GTK+ 2.24.32; amd64-portbld-freebsd12.1)
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep -r -A20 -i Jun\ 2020 ".local/share/evolution/mail/local/.FreeBSD.Quest/cur/" | grep Sylpheed\ 3 | cut -d: -f3 | sort -u
 Sylpheed 3.1.1 (GTK+ 2.24.5; i386-portbld-freebsd8.2)
 Sylpheed 3.7.0 (GTK+ 2.24.32; amd64-portbld-freebsd12.0)
 Sylpheed 3.7.0 (GTK+ 2.24.32; amd64-portbld-freebsd12.1)
 Sylpheed 3.7.0 (GTK+ 2.24.32; amd64-portbld-freebsd13.0)
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep -r -A20 -i Jun\ 2020 ".local/share/evolution/mail/local/.FreeBSD.Quest/cur/" | grep Evolution\ 3.36.3 | cut -d: -f3 | sort -u
 Evolution 3.36.3

My grep, cut, sort scripts are inaccurate, but still accurate enough to
prove your statistic wrong, since after executing even an inaccurate
search, it's possible to verify the message headers by taking a look at
a few messages. Even if I would have written accurate scripts to check
what is on my machine, it might not provide all mails from the list.
