So this means that elm-me+ is almost never used by those 55 who have it
This would lead me to think that most of the 55 people have only installed
elm-me+ because it is priority standard, and are never using it.
=> mutt should be the standard mail reader.
BTW: Whoever said that elm-me+ is actively maintained, should take a look at
the maintainer: It is Michael Elkins (me). Now, take a look at mutt. Who is
the author? Correct. Michael Elkins.
