There are plenty of decent email applications out there. I use Mozilla Thunderbird. Its behavior can be changed through the many add-ons available for it. It's also cross platform. I can install an extension in Windows XP and boot into Ubuntu, where the new extension will be waiting. Here's a list of add-ons I've got installed. That means I either recommend, use, used, or plan to use it. I'll try to clarify the difference in the future. I'd be happy to discuss any of them.

Birthday Reminder shows a list of upcoming birthdays for all contacts in thunderbird's addressbook.

If a date of birth is provided in this field, the contact's name is added to the list along with the number of days until the birthday and the age of the contact.
