 +[02] WHAT MAIL PROGRAMS ARE AVAILABLE HERE?
  
 +     There are SO MANY mail readers, its unbelievable. ​ Many share
 +     the same functionality,​ interface and commands .. pointless!!
 +
 +     ​mailx ​    ​System 7 standard mail client. ​ Very minimal, but
 +               quick and useful. ​ You could use it from a teletype.
 +
 +     ​rmail ​    ​(emacs -f rmail) East Coast mail / babyl reader
 +
 +     ​pine ​     West Coast mail reader. ​ Actually incorporates MM
 +               (from TOPS-20) as its core, though you'd probably
 +               never know that.  Slow, but user friendly.
 +
 +     ​alpine ​   A complete recode of pine.  Supposed to fix all of
 +               pines problems but probably just makes new ones.
 +  ​
 +     ​nail ​     A very simple mail reader and processor.
 +
 +     ​elm ​      A simple and easy mail reader. ​ Though, has a tendancy
 +               to barf on MIME encoded attachments.
 +
 +     ​mutt ​     A stripped down version of elm, but with better
 +               ​support for MIME encoded attachments.
 +
 +     ​pop3 ​     your POP3 mail server is '​mail.freeshell.org'​
 +               ​(NOTE,​ there is no SMTP support here, no relaying
 +                from unknown and non-local networks).
 +
 +     ​procmail ​ this can be used for filtering incoming mail and
 +               doing what you will with it.  fairly powerful.
