Pine, elm and tin. All are text-based, but pine is rather full featured
despite of that. Some people really like to use the by the way. A nice
looking girl next cube to me just loves to use ‘mail’ to handle e-mail,
believe you or not. She remembers message numbers and runs external
utility to handle MIME attachements. Oh well, she started to use
The vmail indeed sux and there is nothing to do about it. I’ve ported
Spruce yesterday (GTK based) and it runs under Xphoton, but I used
development/unstable source and it does indeed misbehave here and there
I’ll probably try Balsa later, that thing is bigger and takes whole lot
of Gnome stuff to compile, but supposed to be release quality.
What about email client? vmail sux…that much I do know… >

If you know vi keybindings vim(feature full/big), elvis(smaller)
lead the way.
If you know emacs keybindings emacs(feature full/huge), jed(small).

or pure X should bring you nirvana.
I use vim with full color syntax, my screen looks like xmas, you need
shades, when going by my desk.
