Do you use mailx for managing your personal mail as well or just for browsing local e-mails sent by daemons such as crond etc?

I use and vote for mutt.

I write mail with emacs, send it with sendmail, pick it up with fetchmail, read picked-up mail with mailx. I archive mail (incoming and outgoing) in mbox-compatible files that I read with mailx.

OK, I see. I see you like Unix way . I also use Emacs together with mutt-mode for writing e-mails, send them with msmtp and download them with either getmail or offlineimap. I use Mutt as a front-end for all of these activities and for reading e-mails. I also use notmuch for searching text in e-mails, procmail for filtering e-mails and GNU screen backtick feature for displaying new mail notification in the terminal. I store all e-mails in Maildir in ~/.muttmail.

I wasn't slanging anybody, just mentioning that some of us dinosaurs still use mail(x), what we had 30 years ago, but it isn't in the list.

I get mostly html email so am limited in what I can use (that displays html email correctly instead of as code), so use thunderbird.

I've been poking at setting up Alpine on my Debian system, but it doesn't like me. I can receive, but I can't send. It's about third on my list of problems to solve.

As regards HTML email, I still hold that it is evil and a kludge. In Sylpheed, I can click on the links, but I don't have to look at the pictures. That's fine with me.

Still using Gnus - too lazy to finally get NeoMutt set up.

Re: the above discussion: HTML e-mail is atrocious and a mail client that supports it is broken in my opinion.

I agree. When I want to use a link in a message I mark it and transfer it into lynx.

Thunderbird is already a great piece of software from my point of view, I'm really satisfied... and, even more, Mozilla has great plans for it: https://blog.mozilla.org/thunderbird...rbird-in-2019/

Alpine - i began with Elm many years ago, then moved to Pine for IMAP, thereafter Alpine, and now it's all about Realpine which is very convenient, in keeping 4 email addresses under one roof, in keeping all mail files in my homedir, in one single TMUX terminal using one single software

ok, at times i need the help of DavMail for an outlooky spooky address...
