[ Thanks to Linuxcare for this contribution. ]

Linuxcare's App of the Week is mutt 1.0.1. "I originally installed mutt 0.9(something) as a Debian package, and have used Debian's upgrade facilities to stay up to date with the latest mutt releases. I use mutt every day, and I love it. To demonstrate some of mutt's powerful features, I'd like to share a few of my favorite configuration enhancements."

"Mutt has the ability to check multiple inboxes for new messages. I am a big proponent of procmail, so I sort my mailing list subscriptions into different mailboxes. Handling multiple inboxes is something that pine, another popular mail user agent, never got right. This configuration line lets mutt recognize multiple inboxes:"
