+1. I've been using mutt for a few years. It obviously takes some getting
used to, but when it comes to dealing with large amounts of mail adeptly,
nothing else is even close.

mutt *can* render html mail, so you can read it without seeing tags and
whatnot, but most formatting other than basic layout, bold, etc is lost.
Still, its good enough for 98% of the mail I get. All the rest generally
have a "view as a web page" link anyway.
