I have never used it on UNIX, but I am trying to set up mutt on
cygwin/win2k. What is the best way to do this? I am not above RTFMing,
but I can't find the manual that answers these questions.
To download mail from a pop3 account, I see that I can set pop_host in my
.muttrc, or I could use fetchmail like unixmail for windows
(http://unixmail-w32.sourceforge.net/). What are the
advantages/disadvantages of one over the other?
What are my options for sending it to an SMTP server? Unixmail comes with
sSMTP, are there any other options?
What do I need to do to set up mail filtering? I found a procmail binary
for cygwin at http://www.dd.iij4u.or.jp/~madokam/, but I have no idea how
to use it. Do I need use it in conjunction with fetchmail?
