Elm Millennium Edition is a text-based mail client. There are two branches: Elm 2.4ME+, which is based on Elm 2.4, and Elm ME+ 2.5, which also incorporates some code from Elm 2.5. Elm Millennium Edition contains enhanced MIME and character set support. A subset of UTF-8 (Unicode) is handled. It can read mail from a local mbox and POP and IMAP folders and can pass mail to the PGP or GPG programs. It can also view digests as a mailbox and reassemble fragmented (message/partial) messages. It includes modules for TLS/SSL, iconv, and SMTP.
foldroid is a mail folder selection tool. For people who use mutt or a similar text mode mail reader, foldroid is a convenient tool to navigate through your mail folders. It shows how many messages are in each folder and how many of them are new. This, combined with a tool like procmail to sort mail messages of mailing lists into separate folders, makes selecting the right folder to read easy. Foldroid works best when you run it in a screen session, because it then starts every instance of mutt in its own screen.
