I've switched full time to Sparrow largely because of how well it handles multiple email accounts. I'm willing to put up with some of its other quirks because of the fast account switching and unified inbox view. Switching between accounts is the fastest I've experienced of any tightly-coupled-to-gmail mail application I've used on any OS and the minimal UI ...

I use Automatic (I use 1.x version, which was free, I see there’s version 2.x which is a paid update and I didn’t know about. My 1.x works ok), Transmission for the download (it monitors the files that Automatic downloads from a RSS feed I’ve created using ShowRSS (free).

"The client side is set up in the usual fashion" - I've had different results due to Firewall Unique Identifier. At least on a Mac OS X 10.8 client. The SonicWall configuration guide (Equinox document SonicOS_Standard-6-EN.pdf) clearly states a need for Firewall Unique Identifier.

I tried it once, but the poor gmail support at the time had made me drop it. Then there are a plethora of without-GUI apps, like mutt, which is highly praised by the UNIX-folks. If you need a client with robust Exchange ...

There's also Royal TSX, which is similar to CoRD but much more powerful.
