True. It can be configured to suck even less, though. But I want a
minimalist alternative that's configured to suck less *at build time*.

IMO, MUA should simply draw a list of messages to it's console, and
simply pipe message contents through mailcap, for opening in another
window, overwriting the message list or (if you're living in another
century than I am) forwarding to a line printer producing a hardcopy.

Mutt, on the other hand, sports a built in pager. Sucks.

I thought that to be mostly a MTA problem. Note, though, that mutt
supports multiple 'mailboxes' (switching between them is usually bound
to 'c').

Really, how many MUAs out there let WMs control their windows? Claws?
