Internet & Networking I had been an avid user of Pine for almost five years. Recently, I decided to move to a greener posture. I dumped my good old Pine and settled with a graphical client. Although, sometime I miss the simple, fast, text based interface, the new relationship is shaping up to be an exciting one. We have our bad times, but overall I am happy with the switch.

Mutt

Pine users fear no more for there is Mutt! Mutt is an elegant ncurses MUA with many, many features available. Very good documentation as well. A more liberal license. And for the nostalgic there is "muttlikepine" which makes your Mutt function almost exactly the same like Pine. You don't *have* to use a GUI or X MUA these days, there are still good alternatives available. Details and more at http://www.mutt.org (run it in screen / ssh and never look back ;)
