After reading the "The Grumpy Editor's guide to terminal emulators" I felt
I had to mention the terminal emulator I use on a daily basis: dzt.
dzt has tabs, color, fonts, decent scrolling, selectable profiles, visual
alerts on tabs with activity, and several user-configurable hotkeys for
dzt actions (eg: next tab, previous tab, new tab, close tab, etc..). The
best part of dzt is that each tab consumes about as much memory as an rxvt
terminal session. When coupled with XFCE, you can have a stylish and fast
desktop in really slim environments.
Sadly, the only drawbacks are that dzt seems to be not maintained anymore
(or, as the authors states "Development is very sporadic") and is a GTK-1
based application. Which is a shame because is it one of the nicest
terminal emulators I've used. Its homepage (with download links) can be found
Please try it out, I think you'll like it.

I have many things I'd like to do with exmh, including slowly
replacing the nmh base. But, on the other hand,
"If it aint' broke, don't fix it." The main thing I'd like
to have has a central email manager that pulls and filters
email, and then supports multiple email user interfaces.
For example, I'm about to go on an extended road trip and
I have to rely on my exmh UI remaining alive on my desktop
at work so it can do all the filtering for me. Plus, I can't
tunnel in from my Windows laptop and run exmh natively on
my windows laptop.
It should be easy to split exmh into the mail manager half
and the user interface half. Alas, I spend all my time with
my day job (which takes up most evenings, too) or my family.
It took me months to get a TclHttpd distribution out in
"my spare time". It is time for an exmh release as well.
If I win the lottery or Panasas goes public, I can retire
and work more on an email client. In the meantime it works
quite well for me. Keep the faith.
If you need IMAP, the easiest thing is to use something like
fetchmail that can get mail from anywhere. Ultimately I'd
like a toolkit that helped you exploit tools like that to
manage email from multiple user accounts and servers, etc.
etc. It is all possible now, but takes a fair amount of
time with your head under hood pulling at wires.
