Use IMAP and your favorite client. It is just that I have not seen
such a nice client. I'm also "always" online, so I don't worry about
the fact that the app is a website. I can always connect.

There *is* an offline mode for Gmail, if you really want offline.

I've been using Gmail as my primary for 4-5 years now, and I *rarely*
need to see something in fixed-width. RARELY. I just don't see this as
a problem. For the time here and there where it is needed, I just
cut/paste into Emacs.

It would be nice to have a Reply-All immediately there, but it is just
one click away. I hit the drop-down, then hit Reply-All very
frequently. Two clicks is not bad.
