From Mac Guides
Mail is a free, relatively full-featured e-mail application bundled with Mac OS X. It supports the standard IMAP, POP, and SMTP Internet mail protocols — it also has limited support for Microsoft Exchange servers.
Mail uses the system-wide OS X spell checker and is fully integrated with the OS X Address Book application. It also has some integration with iChat and iCal. Version 2, introduced with Tiger, includes support for smart mailboxes, driven by Spotlight integration.
Mail stores e-mail messages and folders using the UNIX mbox format.
