Yes, I especially like this so I can read my mail, currently housed on my
linux mail server at home, from several different machines including one I
use at work running pc Pine for Winblows.  Can I do imap with mutt? if
not, I'll have to stick with pine.  I'm curious about mutt but if I go
pop3, I lose this flexibility I mentioned above.
