Mutt's a great mail program, but it can be tough to get it configured just so. This guide might help curious users shopping for a solid, text-based client get off to a good start.

Mutt can be configured to do about anything with your mail. It handles MIME encoded mail quite well, has PGP support, and can be used as a POP3 mail client. The way it works with mailing lists and threaded mail alone is reason enough for any heavy e-mail user to consider it. You can configure it to use different signatures depending on who you're sending mail. And you can configure it to view mail in different mailboxes in different ways, including using color highlighting for different parts of an e-mail. If there is some function you want Mutt to have, it can be configured to have that function.
