"the mail client has too many bugs" thats something people appear to have massively re-focused their efforts upon, see this MozillaZine description: <http://mozillazine.org/articles/article2079.html> and this document: <http://www.mozilla.org/ma…/current/performance.html> for details
"I wish development had continued on Netscape 4.x" it did. work continued, in an Open manner, under the name 'mozilla.org', to develop version 5, which was scrapped and the numbering moved to version 6, or 1.0, depending how you look at it.
"because it was once a great browser with a great mail client" and you'll notice by the numbering (0.9.6) that it isn't yet in a finished state, and that you're getting to try it before you would otherwise have been able to if it were in closed development. the fabled finished state is now within sight, so if you wait, Mozilla will likely be that "great browser with a great mail client"
"If I could find another nice mail client" in my opinion, no email problem has ever come close to Pegasus Mail for Windows by David Harris. you can find (version 4.01) here: <http://www.pmail.com/>
