gnus is an obvious candidate. It can be a bit of a steep learning curve
initially. I use it to interact with two different gmail accounts via
imap, as well as a few nntp groups, like this one. I'm finding the
development version of gnus a pleasure to use for this: it is fast, and
there's a very nice search facility both for imap and for nntp
groups. (E.g. I used to find it hard to reply in an old thread, but not
any longer)

As for org compatibility, isolated begin_src fragments are fontified as
if they were in org-mode which is very nice (so the languages are
fontified correctly if you turn on org-src-fontify-natively). This is
thanks to Seb Vauban, and Julien Danjou. Also attached text files are
fontified in the correct major mode. I don't really know how it works,
but the end result is that often when reading this list in gnus, I see
fragments of org-mode markup, and emacs-lisp and other languages, fully
fontified in my email.

As for MIME, do you know the org-mime-* functions, contributed by Eric
Schulte? They work very nicely; I'm looking forward to finding some
spare time to work out how best to fit them into my day-to-day emailing.
