how i email

Since I’ve been asked this several times, on the flight back from UDS-R, I decided to document my email workflow.

I have a medium-sophisticated mutt setup that I’ve been using and refining for the past 12 years or so. It used to be a lot more complicated but over time, I’ve been attempting to reduce the delta between my quirks and the mutt defaults, and this is about where I am today.

The remaining reasons for my quirks are:

  • keybindings that are vim-ish
  • supports 2 separate IMAP accounts (including google apps for your domain)
  • color scheme and visual layout quirks
  • fix some annoying default behaviors

In any case, if you’re interested, you can grab my setup over at github.
