Foolowing the advices of Girogos, you should be able to use mutt with
imap, I do, and it works quite well, the thing that I miss is
the abilitty to view the number of new mail an imap folder has when
swithching between folders using 'c' . Does anybody be able to do this ?

Here are the relevant parts of my conf (I access a TLS/SSL protected dovecot

set ssl_starttls

# Don't wait to enter mailbox manually
unset imap_passive

# Management of multiple imap accounts
account-hook . 'unset imap_user; unset imap_pass'

# plop.org imaps
account-hook imaps://imap.plop.org/ 'set imap_user=baptiste 
account-hook imaps://imap.plop.org/ 'set spoolfile=imaps://imap.plop.org/INBOX'
account-hook imaps://imap.plop.org/ 'set folder=imaps://imap.plop.org/INBOX'
account-hook imaps://imap.plop.org/ 'set mbox=imaps://imap.plop.org/INBOX'
account-hook imaps://imap.plop.org/ 'set 
account-hook imaps://imap.plop.org/ 'set 
account-hook imaps://imap.plop.org/ 'save-hook . +'

I start mutt like this:

mutt -f imaps://imap.plop.org

For the problem with the evolution icons, it's that you need to launch
gnome-settings-daemon (it needs a dbus session too).

In my xinitrc, I have this:

if which dbus-launch >/dev/null && test -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS"; then
    eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session`
/usr/local/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon &
