neomutt


I am wanting to setup a mail client for my emails (protonmail and eventually my own mail server) on the commandline and tty. I did some research and like neomutt, but have just a few direct questions I could fully find an answer for in their docs.

I myself currently use my email via a web browser, this means I never know if I have a new email until I log in. I know to a lot of people that is bad and they want to know when there is a new message before hand, I don't. I LOVE having it this way for many reasons, does neomutt work this way? IE: When I launch neomutt and login to my email it updates it, or do I have to install a syncer? I ask as EVERY guide uses a syncer and I just want it to only update when I login and would hope neomutt can do that on it's own. Along those lines I could use a recommendation, I was trying to setup neomutt last night using their docs and it is a long process. Really what I want to do is get my config (for keybindings and basically everything execpt having my email info in neomuttrc) done so that I can write a script to ask me what my email is and then just add it when I install my system. This way I can keep all the big configs in neomuttrc in my repo and just add personal stuff when I install. Does anyone have a guide they can recommend? All I can find is how to setup neomutt with a syncer and there is a JS wizard by Luke Smith, but that does more than I want. Thank you

I thought Protonmail was a special case, because you need this?

I just found out about that, I hate to ask but do you know of an email service that is free and not something like gmail or yahoo that allows for this? I am looking to get neomutt and pgp working... I know this one of those hard things to find, but I can't offord my own mail server at the moment and really want to make the switch...

Linux version still beta and not available for download, even if it was advertised to be ready in 2018.
