I've tried using it, if I didn't already have a big archive of old mails
that I need to refer to and you are starting up a new account its
probably worth trying out.

generating the ferret db's for an existing set of mbox's or mdir's is a
pain in the ass and takes a while. in general i found sup to be a buggy
and just crashes occassionaly. I ended up going back to mutt 1.5.x
