Dear Philippe,

Mutt must be a female dog (no macho touch inteded). Technical people love it
and, once you have it configured, it is nice to use.  ... once ... once ...
once in the future.
I just got tired trying to get it configured and reverted to kmail.

Anyway, this isn't my question. But I will be happy to send you mails with
mutt if you prefer.
