Before that, I have been using pine (nowadays named alpine), which had configuration edited via builtin options editor and before that, elm, never configured by me (AFAIR - about 20yago). So, with this perspective, I can say mutt is not bad and I intend sticking to it for a while.
What about mutt do you prefer over alpine? g. -- Proud owner of F-15C 80-0007 http://www.f15sim.com - The only one of its kind. http://www.diy-cockpits.org/coll - Go Collimated or Go Home.
