That's Thunderbird (which I'm using right now), I think. The Evolution 
email editor is a wonderful compared to Thunderbird's.

Tinymail seems to be a viable alternative.  It claims to have 
out-of-the-box support for OLPC: http://tinymail.org/

The technical featureset is impressive.  I have no idea about real-life 
quality.


Oh, there is even a video of it running on an XO: 
http://tinymail.org/demos/tinymail_on_olpc.mpg


Is it just who didn't know about this till now?

The use of the proper sorting algorithm does not change the lousy track 
record of Evolution due to other parts of that monstruous application 
:-(

Right. That's why I used to use Evolution. The threading
was wonderful. In many ways, I miss Evolution.

After years of watching bug duplicates pile up for the
mailbox corruption, I had to face the fact that Evolution
just wasn't something I could trust with my email.

Go ahead and clone the UI, mostly. Run from the code.

Evolution has a long history of eating mailboxes. When a serious
bug commonly affects users and goes unfixed for years, one should
have quite a bit of doubt about the code.

Evolution also happens to mangle mail in ways that hinder full
participation in many Open Source mailing lists.

Really, this code is not a candidate for reuse.

 It looks lovely, even has conversations (the one absolutely
 necessary feature of GMail).

GMail conversations are a poor substitute for real threading.
See jwz's site for the proper algorithm. (Google: jwz threading)

The GUI is also very simple, most of it is the WebView.
