yes, IMAP is not a strength. but then again, an IMAP client isn't
really a MUA on the same scale of interpretation that mutt without
IMAP is one...

but you can happily spawn two hundred separate instances and point
them wherever you like... it works just fine i find, it's lightweight,
and it's fast...

then again, i've never used anything else...

it's a MUA that already features a POP3 client and some IMAP. that's
overkill. when you see a MUA as a mailer that doesn't simply
communicate with the real backend through IMAP, then it's the best
thing out there... IMHO.

let's not start a flame war ;)
