I use email in the terminal with a combination of:

local IMAP server to fetch Protonmail mails
to run protonmail-bridge in
isync (or offlineimap etc)
to sync IMAP with maildirs
to tag and search mails
to move mails found by certain notmuch queries in certain maildirs
to read, compose, search and tag mails
to send mails
w3m (or lynx etc)
to read HTML mails in the terminal
to copy archived mails
a shell function and an alias
to make it all less ridiculous

To most, Thunderbird will be suitable, the target audience here is unreasonable people.
