you know me. i used to use mh till a few years ago. maildir and mh
mail folders are similar in that they store one message per folder,
but that's it. an mh folder just stores messages in a number. if the
highest numbered message is 435, then the message will be stored as 436.
there are locking issues i suspect.
mh is great because you can easily script it; you can use a text or gui
front end (there are even two gui's - xmh (c+athena wigets) and exmh
(tcl/tk)). in the end though it was too much a hassle to configure
for me. anytime i made a change i'd have to hit the docs - whether the
change was big or little.
