I could access my two mailboxes (T-Online, simple POP/STMP and Google Mail, IMAP/SMTP with special port and encryption settings).

Pidgin

Pidgin supports many chat protocols, for example ICQ, IRC, Jabber, MSN Messenger or Yahoo Messenger, and there are plugins for others (e. g. Skype). You can have multiple accounts. Your contacts are ordered in a “Buddy List”. Beside chatting, there is also an option for sending files to other buddies.
