Yeah I have the preview pane set up similarly. You're quite right about
being able to delete threads or mark them read, as being sweet.
The threading is what's the "bees knees" for me.
At present I'm torn between using vim or jed as my editor. I've used vim
since I got into Linux, in the latter part of the ninties. But, since I use
slrn for nntp, I thought I'd try out JED -- Just to be loyal initally to Jim
E Davis whom is the developer of both slrn, slang and JED. I found out I
actually liked JEDs simplicity, (to my surprise) so now I'm using JED in
slrn and vim in mutt. LOL
