better try harder.. I know of at least 2 people using it :) And everyone
using sylpheed is using it.
I like it.. a grep paulj ~/Mail/Inbox gives me something useful, rather
than just telling me I had a mail from paulj.. it even tells me which
one it was in.
(And if you get worried about inodes/diskspace, it'll even pack the mail
into an mbox stylee file for reiserfs to eat).
