Also have a look at Opera www.opera.com . It's fast, fast, fast !!!
The security options are also very sophisticated. I still run V6.04, but V7.0 Beta is available now. It has a new e-mail client witch is based on a database. Looks promising.
It automatically categorizes and sorts e-mail messages by contact, has an integrated spam filter, and supports POP3, IMAP, and ESMTP.

As e-mail client I use Eudora. It's not that clever as IMAP-client, but works. Most e-mail viruses are no concern for me.

Ivan,

Mozilla user here too. Actually, I just switched to Phoenix, which is a
browser-only branch on the Mozilla tree. Amazingly fast and very stable
for a 0.4 release!

As far as email goes, you might look at Pegasus Mail or PocoMail (which
is what I use). I'm not sure about Pegasus, but I know PocoMail uses
it's own HTML engine and *cannot* execute ANY active HTML scripts of
any kind. There has never been a script related virus infection
reported with PocoMail. PocoMail also lets you turn off any external
links in HTML email, so no snoopy spam tracking gets by it either. In
fact, I have a couple email accounts that get no spam -- amazing in
this day and age.

Pegasus Mail is freeware, PocoMail is shareware but reasonably priced.
