I'm using mutt (with /lots/ of config tweaking to make it do what I
want) around 95% of the time. It's served off of a set of around 20
Maildirs (sitting on an Infrant NAS) that courier-imapd also serves out
as folders, so that I can access it via Mail on my OS X laptop, via my
ipod touch, and via squirrelmail (which I've used maybe twice). I tried
to switch over to roundcube recently but failed to get the sqlite db
version working on NetBSD, despite that being one of the default pkgsrc
options. For 1 user, a real DB is too heavyweight. So ... back to
squirrelmail as a backup that I rarely use.

I'm told that I should look at Dovecot for imap instead, but I'm lazy
and my setup is already working ;-)


There is no reality -- only our own order imposed on everything.
