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.
