I've used both claws and Sylpheed in the past, personally I prefer
everything in Sylpheed over the Claws, but If you absolutely need to
send or reply to an HTML email and keep the HTML formatting then Claws
wins.  That was the only reason I had to switch back to Claws because I
had to send and reply to people in HTML who could care less how bad
HTML is for send email.
