Althea is an IMAP email client for X that uses the GTK widget set. It was built with the IMAP protocol in mind in order to avoid many of the pitfalls experienced by POP clients that added IMAP support. Althea allows easy access to a nearly unlimited number of servers, and has a very small memory footprint. As of version 0.5.0 Althea also supports IMAP over SSL.
