Is there a linux mail client I can use that will let me see my folders in Hotmail and persist the changes back to the server? Kind of like the Hotmail connector for Outlook, or Windows Live Mail?

I'm using openSuse and KDE desktop, with Gnome application support.

According to this site, however, you can get the features of IMAP on your iPhone or iPod. Email tutorial: Hotmail At least that's something.
