I'll have to try mutt sometime.
Not having a decent gui mail client for linux has been
a long time weeping sore (well IMO anyway).
All the ones I've tried kmail, tkRat etc etc have either
been too gui (ie. large, slow and unreliable) or not
enough features. For ages now at home I've been using elm.
And it's great but a gui one would be nice. I've even
tried netscape (for a short while). The closest one for
me was the linux copy of Sun's mailtool but I think that
once crashed on me (I hate mail clients that are unreliable
which is why I stick to mailtool on Suns not dtmail).
