You left out a key feature: message threading. From the looks of the screenshots, none of the reviewed mailers support this. If you read busy mailling lists, once you get used to it, living w/o it is painful.

kmail tries something like this, if I understand you correctly. In my case (old version, KDE 3.1.5) it does not get the threads quite right, though. I did not delve into the details of this, just considered it a curiosity.

Indeed. KMail 1.6 (optionally) uses a threading-by-subject algorithm
similar to mutt's.

Evolution can do threading. I personally dislike it though ;)

Mozilla can do threading. It's just non-obvious.
In thunderbird it's a bit any case, it's (by default) the leftmost sort column on the message list.
