Description of problem:
Am I the only one missing elm?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. elm is gone...
As a long-time user of "elm" I have switched to PINE ages ago as my primary mail
client. You might want to do the same.
Since then I've used elm only rarely for automated posting of MIME attachments.
See e.g. bug #49566. elm is pretty much unmaintained, afaik, and not up-to-date
with regard to modern e-mail features.
I would recommend adding it back in. I know of a friend who still uses it and
will complain when it disappears. Another good alternative to elm is mutt.
It's way too outdated and doesn't support the last decades of email standards.
We also ship many other email clients.
