Howdy;

Are there any text/shell based email programs out there
besides mutt? The text on allmost all the applications
software on karmic needs an electron microscope just
to see if there's any text there at all, so I can't use it to
list software, or do much of anything else. Thats on
the coarsest possible resolution, too. :-(

Many KDE program has an option to change fonts or you can change the
fonts for your whole desktop in System settings.

I think the issue is https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=221963

True enough Mark. But if your going to steer Bill towards my favorite email
client, you may as well suggest the updated "drop in replacement" that he
can actually get with apt-get...

An excerpt from http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/allpackages :
alpine (2.00+dfsg-4ubuntu1) [universe]
Text-based email client, friendly for novices but powerful

Bill, original pine {which can still be had from www.washington.edu/pine/getpine }
shares an almost identical user interface, with alpine {Which in addition to the
version in "universe", can be had from www.washington.edu/alpine/acquire }
That interface is different from mutt. Both pine & alpine require a little bit of
configuration to get working. {Well actually, if you had mutt working... the
default configuration of the *nix versions use sendmail (user@hostname) and your
machine's mail spool.} The interface is mouse friendly, but designed for the
keyboard. It features single keystroke command initializations with the
currently valid choices displayed at the bottom of the screen. It has an
extensive internal help system. It's primarily designed {and easiest to
configure} to access standards compliant IMAP server accounts. But if you look deep
enough there are setup instructions for compliant POP servers as well.

In the event that you get stuck there are mailing lists.

Good luck

Before the advent of 'X' I used to use 'mail'/'mailx' from the
command line - or am I misunderstanding the query.

Hi
me again
Up to about a year ago I was using Claws Mail which has some very nice
filter capabilities, expire on age in folders for instance.
I moved to Evo as Claws would crash and freeze the whole machine, That
was using Fedora,
Has anyone had any problems with Claws mail crashing ?, it would do this
regularly when filtering. If its stable in squeeze I might go back to
it.as the Evo annoys me with it max 80 characters /line

No, 3.7.10 on sid is still fairly flaky. I don't use filters much, but
occasionally my ISP cannot seem to provide bodies for all its news
headers, and Claws takes this rather personally, as it does a sudden
loss of Internet connectivity.

I've never known it to affect the rest of the machine, it just rather
obviously loses all the 'read' flags it has collected, which is not
funny after a long session with a busy newsgroup.

But it's *fast*.

Can you expand that "80 characters per line" issue? Is that a kind limit
for reading or when composing messages? :-?

In Thunderbird that can be by-passed in real time by setting a
"preformatted" text for the selected paragrah and so forcing a non-break
line. If that's the issue maybe Evo provides something similar.

Greetings,

I am currently using Claws Mail 3.7.10 on Testing and don’t see any
crashes whatsoever. There have been a few problems with libgnutls
breaking POP support, but they have been resolved now (and before
that, one would only have to pin said library to a specific version,
so it wasn’t a real problem anyways).

Best regards,

Claudius
