Why Apple's Mail.
Authored by: euskir on Jun 09, '06 03:16:05PM

One of the main things: it's better handling all kind of messages, with pictures, music, whatever. I get lots of newsletters, and in Entourage was a real pain, some with half pictures, or no pictures at all, or "strange font behavior".

Apple mail has a huge problem handling digest list messages. Or more accurately, it can not handle them in the same manner Eudora can. Eudora can be configured (simply check a box) to treat digest messages as a mailbox. By doing this, it makes it really easy to reply to a message. I myself don't subscribe to digest versions, but those that do aare doing themselves a dis-service by not using Eudora.

Pine handles all sorts of messages, too. If there are pictures, or fancy HTML formatting, or music, or anything else, it tells me that they're there, and then doesn't display them.

And that's just the way I like it. :-) [Insert diatribe about kids today, fancy-schmancy email clients, barefoot uphill both ways, et cetera, et cetera.]

Pine? But pine has that silly editor that has all these fancy, get-in-your-way control-commands. Elm is really the way to go, with vi configured as the editor. Kids these days, "pine," pshaw. [tongue firmly in cheek]

To be serious for a moment, Pine does actually let you use an alternate editor of your choice instead of the default pico.
