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 'mx.sdf.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.
