Pine is a pretty non-moving target. Sometimes it looks like pine is in a
different computing universe. PGP integration? Unicode? Ever got a reply

I tried mutt and gave up. Is there a way to organize folders like in pine
or does one have to scrolling up and down day in day out? Etc.

It would help a lot to have a _good_ pine->mutt muttrc.
