This isn't a direct answer to your questions, but if all else fails you might consider using Mozilla Thunderbird.  I recently set up TBird 0.5 to use one common set of address and mailbox files on both W98 and SuSE 9.0.  It is working well with 7 different email addresses on 4 different domains.

Good luck,
