Hi there.
Basically I have the same "problem" ... I was thinking about Thunderbird 
from Mozilla.org.
You just decompress it and run the executable.

under Windoze seema not capable of antivirus checking with Norton or AVG. 
It has a lot of "modules" in development and seems right now the one with 
the brightest future.

With Eudora (which i'm using right now as you can see) you have 2 choices:
- buy CrossOver Office (about 35$ if i do remember right) and then poin the 
"linux-installation" and the win-one to the same FAT32 diretory
- import the *.mbx files in KMail/Evolution ..... seems that you only lose 
the attachments that way. Still trying to figure that out.
I've got 3 years of e-mail in Eudora.MBXs...
