I’ve been using the excellent mutt email client at work (via Cygwin from Windows 2000) and at home (in Gentoo) for a few weeks now. I’m surprised I didn’t write about it earlier.

I’ll publish my .muttrc one of these days.

I like it for its:

– automatic regular-expression-based colorization (in list view and message body view).

– single-key operations.

– customizability

– clean interface. Much less scary than pine!

– ability to read mbox files nicely and thus share message stores with Evolution (home) and Thunderbird (work). So I can jump back and forth between my GUI-based MUA and mutt.
