You make that sound like "even Mutt is better than .."
My experience differs in that it's hard for me to understand how people for whom mail-handling has any importance in their workflow can get along *without* Mutt.
Like any piece of software that sets out to suck less, it's initially harder to get used to. But once you cobble together a half decent .muttrc, and have memorized the most common keys, you start wondering why people willingly would subject themselves to any other mailclient.

Too bad that mutt is mostly abandonware these days. I'd happily donate to someone implementing a nice, usable, configurable modern console mail client to replace mutt (sup is not that). Another GUI client for Linux though? No way.

When GMail came along and everyone went "Ooh, powerful email searching!" I, and other PINE/Alpine users were wondering "uhm, we have that already?".

But in all seriousness, Mutt was originally intended to be a local mail client, and remote stuff was bolted on later, and it shows.
But that hasn't stopped it from being my primary mail client for oh, a decade or so. Mutt is made of so much win...

I don't care. It's still works better then anything else I've ran into for Linux desktop.
Which is sad.

Mutt is a GUI application. It uses ncurses and is a console application, but it's still uses a GUI. It's just very primitive and doesn't use X.
So what you said really doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Just *how* scary was the IMAP code in mutt? I'd be tempted to take a look at it myself..
