What an odd question. When I started using linux, I sent/received
all my emails via Pine running on W3.1 using IMAP on a Sun.
I certainly wasn't going to trust my emails to a system I knew
One of my first experiences of Pine/linux (when Debian still
distributed binary .debs) was massive corruption of mailfiles
through what I can only suppose was file-locking failure. (To
be fair, I think it was IMAP's fault.)
I use mutt now, but I still compile it for the Sun to avoid IMAP.
