    Thunderbird is good, but I truly hate the buggy mail composition editor, which shows a prettified version of the text you are editing, not the text itself. Someone made an external editor interface add-on for Thunderbird, but it is abandoned and does not work with later TB versions.

    The issue is enough to send me looking at console mode, curses-driven mail clients like Mutt, about which I’ve heard good things, and Alpine, as I used Pine on my old shell accounts. With these mail clients you know what you are sending and receiving because they show the raw text by default, but do have options to process html, MIME attachments, and etc.

    I started out using text mode mail and Usenet clients on my shell accounts. In my not so humble opinion, I still prefer text mode for these, as the software does not make assumptions about what the user is sending or receiving. A simple, clean user interface with simple but complete functionality seems best to me for news and email.
