Description David Woodhouse 2002-04-05 18:31:33 EST
The showstopper missing feature which has so far prevented me from switching to
Mutt from Pine:

Pine can be configured with an arbitrary command for accessing an IMAP server,
for example 'ssh <mailhost> exec /usr/sbin/imapd', and then use stdin and stdout
of that command. 

Mutt can't do that, AFAICT. All it can do is run a separate command _before_
trying to connect as normal with TCP.

Not going to be added outside of upstream.
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2004-10-17 16:07:34 EDT
Some time in the last two and a half years, it already got added
upstream :)
