That command misses packages such as alpine etc, but you can find more here:

You can also add to that clients such as:
- Thunderbird
- SeaMonkey (my preference as I use the email & browser as well)
- Opera
- Evolution (not recommended as it only allows downloading of the entire
newsgroup when first set up. The others allow downloading of headers
only, and/or downloading of a set number of headers).
