Yeah, it seems to be the way. I'm just looking for something that reads mail
and does pgp. Nothing else really!
Maybe I'll have to join one of the projects so I can add the code that I want to
use personally! I might pop over to souceforge as well and have a look. I
haven't done much of this sort of stuff yet - just adding little snippets of
code here and there to a couple of small projects. Should be interesting.
I found Mutt to be pretty good in most things except the ease with which a GUI
lets you swap between folders and the like. The console is great for many
things but sometimes a GUI really adds a lot in terms of usability.
Oh well, the search continues...

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
