Thunderbird works pretty well and I don't see many complaints about it.

McAfee doesn't get much love around here, but to each his own, like religion, food, cars, etc.

If using a browser under Windows 7, some have added IBM's Trusteer Rapport to help protect their financial transactions. A few banks have urged their account holders into using it too. USAA, BofA and HSBC do come to mind. https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Trusteer

If your level of rational paranoia pushes you to even greater heights (or depths) a specialized LiveCD for your financial transactions may draw your interest. The Lightweight Portable Security (LPS) project has a steeper learning curve but it may serve the elevated security needs of some. https://spi.dod.mil/lipose.htm One could carry a bootable low capacity USB thumb drive around with it.

They are both free and I have tried both.

I too prefer Mozilla's Thunderbird above all other Mail User Agents. With it's on-going support and ever-growing array of optional add-ons, it can be quite extensible and securable.

Cheers
