Thirty Days of Mutt - Day 10

January 23, 2021

My experiment to try mutt for thirty days is over today. After ten days I realize that I enjoy tinkering with mutt more than I enjoy using it as my primary email client. Consequently, I’ll be switching to a different email client for the next ten days.

What Works About Mutt

What Doesn’t Work About Mutt


I’ll continue to maintain my mutt setup. When I’m using my Linux laptop, which has only the Sway Window Manager, and I need email, I connect to my local server and access mutt. I guess mutt is a reserve email solution. Nice to have, enjoyable to tinker with, can be used in a pinch, but not what you want for day-to-day use.
