I don't see why Debian (or GNU, or "Linux")
bothers with the IMAPD of UofW so much at all.
Aren't there quite some replacements by now?
Sure, "pine" has become a popular mailer -
but it still is not capable of threading.
But the IMAPD fgives us the nice "internal
message - dont delete", and "pico" cannot
be downlaoded and installed by itself.
I hope that mutt will ship with some tools soon
(eg a nice frontend for managing aliases) and
then the admins can set it up for the users
together with "nano" replacing pico.
And we'll kiss pine and its IMAPD goodbye.
