Work? Keyword here is "seems".
Since Kmail1 on KDE3 there is no really fully working
version that does not bork up your mail semi regulary.
And do not even get me started on that "akonadi" crap.

Burn me once, ....
Burn me twice, ...
But what do you call a program that destroys your mail
more often than once per year?
  I call that Krashmail / Trashmail.

YMMV, but my milage was very short each time I tried
since after KDE3.

Tried on openSUSE, Fedora, Kubuntu, on all it failed.

Text-only mailers like Mutt or Alpine for the win.
