Email in Emacs

sazius at

I seem to be in my yearly I-should-use-emacs-for-email phase again. (I know I'll be back with mutt pretty soon, though :-)

What do people use for email in Emacs these days? @cwebber: do you still use mu4e?

Actually configuration was relatively easy with mu4e. I think I've got it mostly setup now, with GPG signing and all.

I still need to test & configure org-mode integration.

I ran "grep -ri ^User-Agent . | cut -f 2 -d ' ' | cut -f 1 -d '/' | sort | uniq -c" on recent guix-devel messages and saw these MUAs with a defined user-agent. (Shockling guix is filled with emacs users)

Wait... did gmail not even register on that list???? I wonder how many mailing lists still meet that metric

maybe for that you might have to look at what servers delivered it?
