+1 on Thunderbird.  See my headers for why.

+10.  Suggestion #1: point'em to Nux. :-) http://li.nux.ro/repos.html

Nux-dextop coexists well with EPEL.

For people in the US who want 'legal' codecs that work with gstreamer, 
see fluendo.com.

Nux has useful packages other than license-encumbered multimedia things 
(Recent abiword, for instance, and 2.x ardour, for another).
