This week's whoops: Using Alpine Mail, there's a reset password option - I thought it was the password for my mail account, not the whole dang system. Didn't expect that in a mail program. Anyway, that was confusing, but I've reset my password to the right one that I won't forget, and now I know something new.
@cameron What made you go with Alpine and not Mutt/Neomutt?
Um, I knew it existed? I didn't find much conversation about one versus the other, and just wanted to try something. It's all new and clunky to me, so I'm open to suggestions. :)
@cameron I don't know much about Alpine at all. The one that came up the most for me some years ago was Mutt, so that's what I tried first and I never looked back.
Well. I did switch to NeoMutt a year or so ago. I can't remember why, but it had some feature that Mutt was lacking.
That's fabulous. Thank you for such good info! Good inspiration for digging into CLI email.
@cameron All my configs are on GitLab. :)
@hund Cool. You're just my Linux Sensei at this point.
@cameron Aw, thanks! :D
@cameron Wait a minute here.. Where did the first part go? :|
@cameron I think this is the missing part one (I recovered it from Vims undodir):
Yes it is. I have used it for a long time and there's nothing it can't do that any other client can.
When (not if) people send me stupid e-mails that's #!$@\($ formatted in HTML I just press `v` to open the attachment view. I then get a fancy list with all attachments, like included files as well as a plaintext and html version of the message itself.
