I believe the reasoning behind having a mail client, as well as a
newsreader and irc client, is so that a user can ask for help on the
mailing lists, newsserver (when we still had it) and on irc. I
occasionally use the mail client as well, so I can check the mailing
lists while my main system is doing a test jhlfs, LiveCD or nALFS build.
As Alexander suggested, I think switching from firefox/thunderbird to
mozilla would save some space and offer more functionality.
