IMAP Email client that allows editing of messages

I've set up my own little IMAP server where all my mail messages end up (from many different addresses). Through Mozilla Thunderbird I access my messages from both my PC at home, and my laptop at school. Because it's IMAP, all messages are stay on the server and I can work with exactly the same mails no matter where I am. If I want, I could install a spiffy web-based interface too.

I've started doing some basic GTD with it too. IMAP is definatly showing its advantages here; I need to work with two different computers each day, and it's nice to have all my tasks available everywhere.

However, I'm getting annoyed by a major shortcoming in Firefox, I can't edit any message. There's a workaround by moving the message to the drafts folder, editing it, saving it, and moving it back, but this breaks a few things.

I did some research regarding this missing functionality: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=2142938

No real practical solution.

That's why I wanted to ask, anyone here know a good e-mail client that allows me to edit any message and supports IMAP properly?

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
