| No sylpheed users here then, eh. Sylpheed knows regex.
I use sylpheed-claws(1) on occasion, but most of the time
I stick with command-line mh (actually, NMH). whilst mh's
pick(1) does not have REs, there's nothing to stop you
from using yer favourite grep(1), either instead of or
in addition to.
`exmh' goes one better, and has support for `glimpse'.
whilst mh/NMH does not have support for threading per se,
I find a simple `sortm -textfield subject -limit 3 ...'
adequate. and I know there are some threading thingies
on the net for use with mh.
whilst I keep my sent e-mail in a separate folder, there's
no reason I couldn't keep it with the other e-mails in the
one reason I find it so annoying when I can't use mh is
its ability to have the same message in multiple folders,
and/or with multiple tags .... but there is only one copy
of the message (unless you want multiple copies).
and I don't have to use any special tools, programs, &tc.
another reason is I can use my favourite editors with mh,
not some borked half-a***ed stamp-sized window; in fact,
this is why I tend to use Mozilla/FireFox (with the mozex
extension) when I must use some web-based nonsense (such
as Gmail): at least then I still use a proper editor.
of course mh/NMH has its annoyances. MIME can be tricky.
it does not use maildir. AFAICR, it does not speak IMAP.
sharing folders, for almost any definition of sharing,
can be quite tricky. and unless you use `sylpheed' or
`exmh' (both GUIs), it is totally command-line (which I
do not consider a disadvantage)..
