/g/, let's talk about Mutt.
I used to use isync/mbsync to fetch my imap folders but now I have to set everything up again and I wonder if there is a better alternative.
Tell me, /g/, what to you use to pull your mails on your computer and why did you chose this one?
>It feels more modern in the way you interact with it
What does "more modern" mean?
>What's the problem with ruby?
I don't feel like installing a whole interpreter and its libs in order to run a single piece of software.
What is the cost for you to install a whole interpreter?
It has some curses-like selection elements to pick which email address you want to send as. Their approach to threaded conversations is very gmail-like (in a good way, not trying too hard)
>What is the cost for you to install a whole interpreter?
Added overhead when setting up a new computer. Longer update times (my internet connection is quite shitty).
Is pic related what you're talking about?
Do you use it? If so, what do you use to fetch your emails?
i use mutt. there is no better alternative because no one wants to take on the challenge of making a client because email is a clusterfuck. mutt has a lot of room for improvement, too. it would be nice to see a neomutt project eventually if we can't get a replacement.

and here's my mutt
IIRC I had some problems with the weird configuration the SMTP server of my uni requires.
But I've set that stuff years ago and I don't really remember why.
I like it because it makes the terminal window feel less obtrusive.
I use fetchmail to get mail from pop and inject it with local sendmail-procmail then retrieve it with mmh client. I send outgoing mail with my local sendmail smarthost config.
I use Alpine, mostly because it's easy as sin to set up and I'm used to it.
I think there are some security flaws though? Don't remember, don't really care. Skiddos can snoop all the university event announcements and Oracle(R) Preferred Shill(TM) spam they want.
