More than time, it's just a preference divide.

When I chose mutt, thunderbird, kmail, evolution, webmail all existed and
I tried nearly all of them as well. Switching to mutt was a choice rather
than old habit, which I have never resented.

I definitely keep my setup evolving, where keeping with times means
looking for better and better ways to manage the ever exploding
information, reducing manual intervention to minimum possible level. For
me, mutt (or for that matter a no of text applications) are a _platform_
rather than an application, on which I can build my own application fairly
quickly.

I don't insist this to suit everyone. It's a subjective matter and hence
not a flame war.

Mayuresh.
