Maybe emacs(though it is not a complete mail prog) is ok.

i personally like the middleground Pine occupies, not stupidly low level and nasty, but very simple to use and not stuffed full of stupid OTT features. also, it uses /var/spool/mail directly, as opposed to kmail and such like which remove all the mail from there, making networked mail and such like stuipd and annoying.

Hi,

I haven't attempted to figure out how to get Linux to run it yet (yes, it's a Windows app - sorry!), but I LOVE the customization ability of Agent (not Free Agent, but it's *not* really expensive, and also does newsgroups). You might check out Free Agent to see if it appeals to you. And if you get one of those to run through Linux, please let me know how!

(Hmm, wonder if there's a Linux version? The thought just occurred to me now that I should go over to www.forteinc.com and check.)

Dani

Well, the forte, inc. folks seem to think that Agent will work in Linux with some kind of Windows emulator, but there is no official Linux version. Well, it's certainly worth trying. Which I will do once I overcome the winmodem problem.

If anybody has any good suggestions on how to get a Win app running in Linux and would explain it in English <grin>, I'd be one step closer....

I would download and install codeweavers wine to try getting some windows applications to run.
