No need to apologize, no harm was done, in fact I learned a new thing today.
here is the deal, I am looking for something to be portable across OS's (I have a small part with Linux as a backup plane, just in case -current failed me at some point) and it gotta be easy to deal with or at least have a straight cut-to-the-chase docs that I can follow.
now the names I am considering is mutt/mailx/alpine
I will be checking on fdm to see if I need it at all or not
