I did something really scary: I tried a graphic mailclient, Thunderbird. Yes, I am a big fan of mutt but I kept having attacheritis (promising someone an attachment in an e-mail and forgetting it) and I lost the overview of my imap folders which I think should happen less with a client like Thunderbird. I wanted pgp-signed mail to work correctly so I set up the enigmail pgp plugin to sign and crypt e-mail. Mutt still rocks because it is so configurable and powerful. Cleaning out an mbox from a mailinglist with one 'D~r >3w' command (delete all mail received more than 3 weeks ago) is still faster than clicking around. The good thing about using imaps everywhere is that accessing the same mailbox with multiple clients is no problem at all. I had to set up an imaps server at home but that wasn't very difficult either.
