Mutt is a sophisticated text-based Mail User Agent. Some highlights:

  • MIME support (including RFC1522 encoding/decoding of 8-bit message headers and UTF-8 support).
  • PGP/MIME support (RFC 2015).
  • Advanced IMAP client supporting SSL encryption and SASL authentication.
  • POP3 support.
  • ESMTP support.
  • Message threading (both strict and non-strict).
  • Keybindings are configurable, default keybindings are much like ELM; Mush and PINE-like ones are provided as examples.
  • Handles MMDF, MH and Maildir in addition to regular mbox format.
  • Messages may be (indefinitely) postponed.
  • Colour support.
  • Highly configurable through easy but powerful rc file.
