    Fair enough question.

    Complete seperation of accounts from one another.  PMMail handles each
account completely seperate.  Filters, signatures, folders, individual
settings.  The only thing which isn't seperate is the spell checking and the
address book.  I'd prefer the address book to be seperate as well.

    While it is a GUI interface I can see the same logic applying to text
based application and had, at one time, entertained the notion of writing
one.  I still have it sitting on the backburner at the moment.  I might
actually do it if I can learn enough of C and PCRE.

    Now, the last time I checked mutt it did not do internal filtering.  It
did allow for multiple pop/imap retrieves into seperate folders.  However, if
one wanted any filtering one had to resort to fetchmail and
procmail/exim/filter.  Otherwise all the mail was dumped into a single folder
for that account and you were done.  It also looked like any of the advanced
features required rc tweaking instead of having the ability to do it on the
fly internally.
