I think the big advantage is off-line usage.  If you are connected
all the time and have dual-mode access for redundancy (say, a home
internet/wifi connection, and a 4G aircard), and don't roam much,
then a web-based mail client solves a lot of problems.  But when
internet access is spotty or unreliable, it's nice to have full
access to your email offline.  Fortunately, there are lots of
options, both within the GUI with varying degrees of accessibility
(Thunderbird, Kmail, Claws Mail, and Evolution come to mind) and
within the terminal (mutt and alpine being the dominant players, but
"alot" and mailx/heirloom mailx also come to mind as well as several
available within emacs).
