-
-<p>Electronic mail is one of the most popular things one can do on the Internet. In 1998,
-it was reported that more electronic mail was sent than regular mail. It is indeed common
-and useful.</p>
-
-<p>Under Slackware, we provide a standard mail server, and several mail clients. All of
-the clients discussed below are text-based. A lot of Windows users may be against this,
-but you will find that a text based client is very convenient, especially when checking
-mail remotely. Fear not, there are many graphical e-mail clients such as KDE's Kmail. If
-you wish to use one of those check its help menu.</p>

-name="BASIC-NETWORK-COMMANDS-EMAIL-PINE">13.7.1 <tt class="COMMAND">pine</tt></a></h2>
-
-<p><tt class="COMMAND">pine</tt>(1) is not <tt class="COMMAND">elm</tt>. Or so the saying
-goes. The University of Washington created their program for Internet news and email out
-of a need for an easy mail reader for their students. <tt class="COMMAND">pine</tt> is
-one of the most popular email clients in use today and is available for nearly every
-flavor of Unix and even Windows.</p>

-</div>
-
-<p>You will see a menu of commands and a row of command keys at the bottom. <tt
-class="COMMAND">pine</tt> is indeed a complex program, so we will not discuss every
-feature about it here.</p>
-
-<p>To see what's in your inbox, type <kbd class="USERINPUT">i</kbd>. Your messages are
-listed with their date, author, and subject. Highlight the message you want and press
-<kbd class="USERINPUT">enter</kbd> to view it. Pressing <kbd class="USERINPUT">r</kbd>
-will start a reply to the message. Once you have written the response, type <b
-class="KEYCAP">Ctrl</b>+<b class="KEYCAP">X</b> to send it. You can press <kbd
-class="USERINPUT">i</kbd> to get back to the message listing.</p>
-
-<p>If you want to delete a message, press <kbd class="USERINPUT">d</kbd>. It will mark
-the highlighted message for deletion. <tt class="COMMAND">pine</tt> deletes the mail when
-you exit the program. <tt class="COMMAND">pine</tt> also lets you store your mail in
-folders. You can get a listing of folders by pressing <kbd class="USERINPUT">l</kbd>. At
-the message listing, press <kbd class="USERINPUT">s</kbd> to save it to another folder.
-It will ask for the folder name to write the message to.</p>
-
-<p><tt class="COMMAND">pine</tt> offers many, many features; you should definitely have a
-look at the man page for more information. It will contain the latest information about
-the program.</p>

-
-<p><tt class="COMMAND">elm</tt>(1) is another popular text-based email client. Though not
-quite as user friendly as <tt class="COMMAND">pine</tt>, it's definitely been around a
-lot longer.</p>

-
-<p>By default, you are placed in your inbox. The messages are listed with the message
-number, date, sender, and subject. Use the arrow keys to highlight the message you want.
-Press <kbd class="USERINPUT">Enter</kbd> to read the message.</p>
-
-<p>To compose a new message, type <kbd class="USERINPUT">m</kbd> at the main screen. The
-<kbd class="USERINPUT">d</kbd> key will flag a message for deletion. And the <kbd
-class="USERINPUT">r</kbd> key will reply to the current message you are reading. All of
-these keys are displayed at the bottom of the screen with a prompt.</p>
-
-<p>The man page discusses <tt class="COMMAND">elm</tt> in more detail, so you will
-probably want to consult that before using <tt class="COMMAND">elm</tt>.</p>

-
-<p>&#8220;All mail clients suck. This one just sucks less.&#8221; <tt
-class="COMMAND">mutt</tt>'s original interface was based on <tt class="COMMAND">elm</tt>
-with added features found in other popular mailclients, resulting in a hybrid mutt.</p>
-
-<p>Some of <tt class="COMMAND">mutt</tt>'s features include:</p>
-

-
-<p>if you're looking for a mail client that will let you be in total control over
-everything, then you will like <tt class="COMMAND">mutt</tt>. all the default settings
-can be customized, keybindings can be changed. if you like to add a macro, you can.</p>
-
-<p>you probably want to take a look at the <tt class="FILENAME">muttrc</tt> manpage,
-which will tell you how to configure everything. or take a look at the included example
-<tt class="FILENAME">muttrc</tt> file.</p>

-<h2 class="SECT2"><a id="BASIC-NETWORK-COMMANDS-EMAIL-NAIL"
-name="BASIC-NETWORK-COMMANDS-EMAIL-NAIL">13.7.4 <tt class="COMMAND">nail</tt></a></h2>
-
-<p><tt class="COMMAND">nail</tt>(1) is a command line driven mail client. It is very
-primitive and offers pretty much nothing in the way of user interfaces. However, mailx is
-handy for times when you need to quickly mail something, scripting a bulk mailer, testing
-your MTA installation or something similar. Note that Slackware creates symbolic links to
-<tt class="COMMAND">nail</tt> at <tt class="FILENAME">/usr/bin/mail</tt> and <tt
-class="FILENAME">/usr/bin/mailx</tt>. Any of these three commands executes the same
-program. In fact, you will most likely see <tt class="COMMAND">nail</tt> referred to as
-<tt class="COMMAND">mail</tt>.</p>
-
-<p>The basic command line is:</p>
-
-<table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="100%">
-<tr>
-<td>
-<pre class="SCREEN">
-<samp class="PROMPT">%</samp> <kbd
-class="USERINPUT">mailx &lt;subject&gt; &lt;to-addr&gt;</kbd>
-</pre>
-</td>
-</tr>
-</table>
-
-<p><tt class="COMMAND">mailx</tt> reads the message body from standard input. So you can
-cat a file into this command to mail it, or you can just type text and hit <b
-class="KEYCAP">Ctrl</b>+<b class="KEYCAP">D</b> when finished with the message.</p>
-
-<p>Here is an example of mailing a program source file to another person.</p>
-
-<table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="100%">
-<tr>
-<td>
-<pre class="SCREEN">
-<samp class="PROMPT">%</samp> <kbd
-class="USERINPUT">cat randomfunc.c | mail -s "Here's that function" asdf@example.net</kbd>
-</pre>
-</td>
-</tr>
-</table>
-
-<p>The man page explains more of what <tt class="COMMAND">nail</tt> can do, so you will
-probably want to have a look at that before using it.</p>
