I've been waiting for the functionality of the gui apps to get
competitive. They sure weren't a year ago, but things change fast,
don't they? I'll be looking at kMail real hard in KDE3, since it
sounds like all the things I want will be there.

It sounds like there are fewer and fewer reasons to use mutt. Of
course inertia will always play a role. At this point, a mailer would
have to be "better" than mutt in some way (other than looks, which
aren't that important *to* *me*). The biggest problem with mutt is
that it's hard to learn, and I went through that learning curve long

Thanks for the info,
