Fed through the tube that sticks in me

12 May 2007 21:50

Thanks to everybody who told me that there wasn't a simple way to persuade Mutt to work with mailboxes containing unread messages.

I've now discovered the mutt-ng project, packaged in Debian's experimental branch. This contains the infamous mutt sidebar patch which caters to my needs fully:

  • I can toggle the display of the sidebar by pressing "b".
  • From there I can jump to the name of the next/previous mailbox with unread mail.
  • Once on a mailbox name I can open it easily.

Job done.

Expect a more involved writeup shortly ..
