I didn’t talk about mail providers.  These weren’t mail *providers* but 
*software clients*.  The beauty of mail is that it’s an old and open 
standard so you can separate provider from implementation, client from 
server.  You can use any of these for gmail.

Actually free-software mail providers are something difficult to find, I 
don’t know any.  Some are listed of FSF websites, but they tend to either 
ask to pay, have unfair limitations, or non-free javascript for certain 
features, or several of those…

Mmh… except for the fame of “Microsoft Outlook” under Windows (where 
thunderbird and emacs already work anyway) I don’t know any mail software 
on a proprietary OS… so unless you run GNU or BSD on your pocket computer 
I don’t really see what could be okay…

But ask people aknowledgable about your pocket OS and maybe they’ll know 
one that support filtering! (or search with a search engine? I don’t like 
that option but if you’re good at it you can find what you want)
