Question Mail experts? What should I do?


I realized I have too many web email accounts. I see I can use pop3 on some of them. What I would like to do is have one email client (text based like mutt would be great if it is possible) and set it up so that I can read and send mail from each web account without having to log onto all those web pages and have all those browser windows open.

I run multiple distros on my pc so I would like to set things up the same on all distros (which is why I would like something like mutt or pine) so that I can have one place to look for mail no matter what I am running.

Is this possible? What other alternatives are there. I realized that I have been using web email for so long that I have no idea what else is available. It would be cool to set up a full on email server but I don't need it (I think) and also I don't have a fixed IP address.

Thanks,
Randux

(I just tried this from inside Mozilla and it seems like it wants to have one mail server for all outbound. And even if you add another one I don't think you can link it to the right account. So this doesn't work.)

yeah sure just use fetchmail to grab the email and place it on a partition accessible to all distro's you run.

Interesting, I hadn't thought of that. I was just thinking of having the same interface wherever I was. I guess I need a new disk drive now.

My main question was really, can I do this with mutt, or pine, etc. (multiple accounts with separate mail servers)
