a mail reader for Emacs.

Mew is a mail reader for Emacs.

  • You can easily display a very complicated structured message.
  • If you know how to do file operations such as copy, you can compose a very complicated message without any difficulty.
  • Since Mew preserves lists of messages in Summary mode, when you move messages to a new folder, they will automatically be listed incrementally.
  • Mew neatly suggests default folders for refiling.
  • And more.
