Well, personnaly, I like fetchmail combined with sendmail. Although there
is a major bug in sendmail : you cannot SPAM yourself : I mean, you can
masquarade your domain name, but you will always have the login name of
the guy who sent the mail... Shit. (I tried to change the m4 files... no

But this is somewhat off topic. I really think that people using computers
who are likely to switch to linux have internet access... And so they are
using email. If there is no REAL nice well implemented email client, they
will never use linux. Also ,for example, netscape or, mozilla should be
rewritten for gnome, to support the html targets mailto: for balsa for
example... We need a REAL netword tool set.
Who is going to do this ? Or is this just too much of user-friendlyness
for our meat-eating pinguin ?
