Mail arguably generates the most data accros the Internet, and like most thing in life you are not part of the Internet unless you're on E-mail. Mail packages should be the easiest to use and have the most adjustable features. Apart from being a mail reader with it's own internal editing program, Pine is also capable of reading newsgroup. Wow you say ?? .. Netscape mail does that to , you say ? Pine has been around for a few years though.

Originally created in 1989 ( yes 1989 !! ) it has retained the look of the first version but has evolved in features like few others. Apart from having the usual online help, message editors,addresbooks and spell checkers there is also support for message attachments, remote message folders and archives via the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP).

I would rate ease of use as one of the highest feature to Pine making mailing and reading mail a breeze to the point where anything else looks crammed with features that you don't need or never really use.

Defenately my choice of mail programs
