Another option would be to use offlineimap or mbsync to sync your mail
on the server with a local maildir. You can then use any mail client
that understands the local mail box format (mbox, maildir).

Personally, I use mu4e to read mail inside Emacs, but I've previously
used mutt. mu4e requires mail to be in maildir format and mutt handles
that just fine, so if I wanted to, I could access my mail from mutt as
well. I used to do that when I was still in the process of switching
from mutt to mu4e, but I haven't found any need for quite some time now.
