I've got it working reasonable nicely with mutt/procmail. The only issue is that
slypheed uses its own mechanism for marking mail as read rather than a sequences
file. This means that when I use mutt, I see the mail thats new since the last
time i ran mutt, and Sylpheed shows whats new since I last ran sylpheed.
This is only a very minor annoyance though, and I think I'll stick with this
configuration for a while.
I was particularly impressed with Sylpheeds GPG handling, something that Balsa,
which I was using previously, lacks.
Of course migrating to Sylpheed means converting your mailboxes into MH format,
and modifying your procmail scripts to use rcvstore.
