Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has released Thunderbird 3. You can read the release notes, or download the darn thing. "If you like Firefox's tabbed browsing, you're going to love tabbed email. Thunderbird 3's tabbed email lets you load emails in separate tabs so you can quickly jump between them. Search results open in a new tab too. New tools like our timeline and filtering tools will help you pinpoint the email you're looking for, whether it’s the one from yesterday, last month, or several years ago."

No. The motto of the best email client still reads:


"All mail clients suck. This one just sucks less." -me, circa 1995


Did you try thunderbird 3 already? I'd argue mutt is not better than that.

The cool thing about mutt is that is makes you really 'leet. It allows you to berate users of modern email clients, who send you html mail with pretty backgrounds, with a certain degree of authority. It's the geek equivalent of being part of the old Aristocracy.

You should try it. A month or two of putzing with your .muttrc file and seeking out tips from other Mutt users should get you passably close to what TB and Evolution users get "out of the box". ;-)

'leet is not what it used to be. Back when I was at school, the 'leet thing was to use Gnus (emacs usenet module) for email too. Elm, Mutt and (god forbid) Pine were the newbie choices.

I can sort of understand someone wanting to use Gnus (prolonged marriage to emacs infrastructure), but using mutt on this day and age seems somewhat masochistic (unless you have a crappy computer of course, or read your emails through shell account).
