I have never met a GUI MUA I like before google webmail. And the
advantage of google webmail isn't so much the GUI MUA, as the fact
that it doesn't suck like IMAP, and does the automatic folders and
good handling of archives right.

The reason I switched away from pine was that pine is fine (apart from
the archival thing) if you have all your mail local. But "local mail"
is painful when traveling, or when trying to interact with mail using
a mobile phone etc.

And IMAP mail in turn is totally useless both when traveling *and*
when at home.

So no, thunderbird isn't an option. A command line interface that just
verifies the gpg signature is what I'd like to see.
