First, it is a non-graphic mailer, that can be run in a text terminal.
be seen as a disadvantage by some people, but the interface is very good
making Mutt very pleasant to use, and this also has advantages: it is
very fast, it can be run remotely with a text connection (this is
useful for some of us!) and several operations can be done in the graphic
mode (by using an XWindow client): composing messages, reading messages (possibly
occsionally), viewing attachments, etc.
mutt is, IMHO, one the best
Unix based mail reader I've ever seen (after Gnus).
Instead of me telling you how good it is I suggest you pop over to the
mutt home page and have a look for yourself.
Well, mutt is a powerful Mail User Agent (MUA). It features configurable
key bindings, POP3 and IMAP support, MIME support, message threading, easy
integration with PGP and GnuPG, colorized display, complete message header
manipulation, hooks for modifying the configuration based on certain
conditions, and many more.
