My experience with sup was basically the same. Also after a a while
the hands-off approach it takes to your 'real' mailbox can be
annoying; you'll have to log in with another client or something and
1,450 "new" messages will be waiting for you. I used sup for several
months, now I'm back to mutt 1.5 series.
