This is superb advice.  I'll piggyback on it by highly recommending
mutt as a terrific email client that is probably about as impervious
to attack as a mail client can be.  (And along with it, w3m, which is
a web browser that runs in a terminal window.)  System and network
administrators who work in the Unix/Linux world are well-served by
learning and using these tools, doubly so because it's become a "best
practice" in the abuse/attack world to target admins.  We have to defend
ourselves, otherwise we can't defend the stuff we run.
