Agreed that Netscape is bad. Not agreed that there are no reliable or
well done email clients. I have used pine for a number of years and
perhaps have gotten used to its interface. I really like the virtual
folders feature and the level of customizability. Unfortunately, my
choice of email client, tkrat, has problems that can be easily fixed
though. Tkrat offers a great feature set with a lot of nice
functionality thrown in like a message database, virtual folders, etc.
I also like ishmail which is commercial. Perhaps my favorite console
reader though is mutt. With one .muttrc file one can pretty much
affect all of mutt's default behaviors. Of course if you want a gui
client... Mutt can be run in a console :)
I do understand the fury though. Netscape will not launch mailto's for
me whatsoever. I probably will go back to the 3.04 release which has
always been stable here. It does the stuff too like java, frames,
